Hi Skip;
I have found Hema maps to be the go. www.hemamaps.com.au
Depending on where you want to go their; Australia Motorcycle Atlas,is a handy size to carry on a bike.They also have more detail maps avaliable.

All of them are very poor value though - it's the information/emptiness ratio you see :)

Another option would be to join one of the motoring organisations (like the AA). In NSW its NRMA and in VIC it it RACV. When you join I'm sure you are able to get free (or cheap) maps that are pretty good both for regional/outback travelling etc.

Check out nrma.com.au for more information

Thanks

I use Raster Natmaps, lots of detail.

Hemma 'Great Desert Tracks' map series - 6 maps covers most of OZ.


If you have a Garmin GPS there is Tracks4Australia - free and very good. A Pro version is also avaliable at a resonable cost.. neither cover cities.
