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.
This map covers the area of the Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park broadly centred about Irishtown, 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 Irishtown, Fryerstown, Vaughan Springs, Glenluce Springs and the Spring Gully Mine. On its northern edge the map overlaps The Monk map; on its southern edge it is overlapped by the Italian Hill map. On its eastern edge it overlaps the Fryerstown map.
The intended hardcopy format (as PDF) for this map is A3.
