Caveat

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.

Welsh Village Walking Tracks Map

This map covers the area of the Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park to the north of Chewton, Victoria, Australia.  The Goldfields Track (this section of the track is common to the Great Dividing Trail and the Leanganook Track) passes through the area covered by the map.  Some of the notable features in the area are the Garfield Water Wheel, the Welsh Village, Sailors Gully, Manchester Reef and Forest Creek.  On its western edge the map overlaps the Kalimna Park map; on its southern edge the map is overlapped by The Monk map.

Ambiguities and Uncertainties

Quartz Hill Track is also known as Quartz Hill Road (it is signposted so at the west end).  The distinction is most likely social.  The northern extent of the name "Garfield Track" is not currently defined.
