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.

Shicer Gully Walking Tracks
Shicer Gully Walking Tracks Map

This map covers the area of the Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park containing Shicer Gully, Victoria, Australia.  The map is perversely unique in this series in that it does not contain any part of the Goldfields Track.  Although the maximum elevation at approximately 406 metre is about the same as that in, say, the Italian Hill area, because of the low land to the southwest the general impression of height is more marked along, for example, the southern section of Steep Track and the unnamed walking track in the east of the park.  On its eastern edge the map overlaps the Italian Hill map; its southeast corner overlaps the Loop Track 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 A3.

Ambiguities and Uncertainties

The names Shicer Gully Road and Rusconis Road are used (on signposts and on maps) interchangeably.

Sign posts indicate a distinction between Pound Lane and Pound (Lane) Track.
