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 Map

This map covers the area of the Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park, CDNHP, containing Shicer Gully, Victoria, Australia.  The Shicer Gully part of the CDNHP stands as an island to the rest of CDNHP.  On its eastern edge the map overlaps the Italian Hill map; its southeast corner overlaps the Loop Track map. 

Shicer Gully Walking Tracks

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 Trk and the unnamed walking track in the east of the park.

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.
