A NOTE FROM THE ARTIST OF THE WESTERN AUSTRALIA MAP
This particular map features so much fantastic and unique geography! All of the state's main topographical landmarks, such as the low hills of the Darling Escarpment, the peaks of the Stirling Ranges and Wunaamin Miliwundi Range have all been accurately marked.
The mountains of the Hamersley Range are particularly dense and have many individually named peaks, including Mount MeHarry, the highest peak in Western Australia. Major river systems such as the Fitzroy River, Gascoyne, Swan, Ord and others wind their way throughout the map, as well as a number of important salt lakes and their tributaries.
The many deserts are another prominent feature, with the Great Sandy Desert, Little Sandy Desert, Great Victoria Desert and the Gibson Desert clearly marked. Western Australia's renowned coast-line is dotted with the state's many islands, inlets and national parks, including areas such as the Archipelago of the Recherge, Shark Bay, Ningaloo Reef, Eighty Mile Beach and the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf. Throughout the map are cities, towns and even a few iconic road houses!
Each of Western Australia's iconic regions has been given thorough attention, from the golden agricultural landscapes of the Wheatbelt and arid plains of the Mid West, to the ancient forests of the South West, tropical savannah of the Kimberley, and mountains and deserts of the Pilbara.
