Great maps and reference
It's complicated to find matching/continuing maps. Maps should have page numbers on the rim/on all 4 sides to easily find a continuum. Otherwise very informative!
Excellent publication with useful information. Line diagrams for distance between points of interest or campsites would be great.
Very similar to the Australian Road & 4WD touring atlas but with more detail of the desert regions. Could be combined into one book??
Nothing better than Hema maps and books and the information that they contain. The content is amazing and essential when traveling the roads to destinations that are off the beaten track.
