A map is a graphical representation of a geographical actuality.  However, though some maps are more representative than others, no map is absolutely correct.  The maps on this site are not exempt from this rule.

Loop Track Walking Tracks Map

This map covers the southern area of the Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park containing Loop Track, Victoria, Australia.  The Goldfields Track (this section of the track is common to the Great Dividing Trail and the Dry Diggings Track) passes through the area covered by the map.  Some of the notable features in the area are Browns Gully, Tarilta Creek, Hunt's hut and Loop Track.  On its northern edge the map overlaps the Italian Hill map.  This map was produced as a CCM freelance exercise, not in conjunction with a community group. 

The intended hardcopy format (as PDF) for this map is A4.

Ambiguities and Uncertainties

The road running north off Limestone Track (502 773) is signposted Shicer Track; it appears on other resources as Rusconis Road and Shicer Gully Road.

There is a Hunt's hut (ruins) on this map, there is also a Hunt's hut (ruins) on the Italian Hill map (references: Richard Piesse, Bushwalking Victoria, respectively).  Informed feedback about the naming of these huts is welcomed.  Jase Haysom.

Amanda's Track is signposed at the west end (528 768).  It is not referenced on resources to hand.  However, the Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park Management Plan refers to the "Amanda's Track Network" – a reasonable name for the tracks to the east of the "Amanda's Track" signpost.

There is a signpost "Links Track" where the Goldfield Track crosses Loop Track (527 769).  CCM does not know to which track this sign refers.
