Review: Australia Illustrated Map

All your present buying problems are solved!

The perfect gift for Christmas, birthdays, baby showers and more, Australia Illustrated Map by the amazingly talented Tania McCartney will wow every single person (child or adult) who unrolls it.

And I really mean wow them!

This map is HUGE! At 135 centimetres by 95 centimetres, it will dominate the lucky wall it adorns. Cute, funky and colourful, the stunning illustrations will draw eyes from across a room, create crowds and have kids fighting to get closer. 

But it isn't just the size or the gorgeous pictures that make this map so delicious. It's also covered with amazing information to explore.

All the expected cities, towns, rivers, lakes and state borders are included. The oceans surrounding Australia are labelled and familiar landmarks are featured. But this map has so much more than you'd expect. 

With hundreds of land critters, sea creatures, attractions, plants and flowers, you could admire this work of art for hours, discovering hidden gems as you examine all the beautiful things that make up Australia.

More than 250 of the illustrations are numbered, and there’s a list at the bottom of the map, so you can look up what everything is — fantastic for young (and older) minds keen to learn. And there are some really cool and unique things to discover, like quokkas, quolls and tree kangaroos. 

Scattered across the map are fabulous facts about Australia and exciting places you can visit. And I loved the additional information about where Aboriginal rock paintings can be found and the locations of shipwrecks in the surrounding oceans.

Stunning, stunning, stunning!

A map for homes, classrooms and libraries, Australia Illustrated Map is the perfect present for all occasions or just a special gift to buy for yourself. 

I promise you won't regret the purchase of this informative, fun and jaw-dropping map of Australia. And at only $24.99, it really is a steal!
