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.

Fryerstown Walking Tracks
Fryerstown Walking Tracks Map

This map covers the area of the Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park to the west of Fryerstown, Victoria, Australia.  Some of the features in this area are Fryerstown, Irishtown, Fryerstown Cemetery and Glenluce Falls.  The Fryers Ranges map is not part of the CDNHP series.  On its western edge the map is overlapped by the Irishtown map; on its northern edge it is overlapped by The Monk map; on its eastern edge it overlaps the Fryers Ranges map and its southwest corner is overlapped by the northeast corner of the Italian Hill map.

The intended hardcopy format (as PDF) for this map is A3.

Potential Confusions

Smuttas Trk is (broadly speaking) 'U' shaped with both ends terminating at Irishtown Trk.  Only the west end is signposted (as at 16/03/2020).  Roads within this region, may be, in different circumstances, referred to by a local name eg Old Coach Rd or a geographic name, eg the Fryerstown Rd.
