We are planning to make a trip camping along the WA coast between Onslow and Denhan and then out to the Kennedy Range NP and the Karijini NP. Would anybody have a view about which of the following spiral bound WA maps would preferred : "Highways & Backroads WA" by QPA or Roads & Trackes of Western Australia" by QBA or the Hema "Western Australia Road and 4WD Track Atlas" ? All opinions will be welcomed.
Thanks Poitr

I find wikimaps a great resource when touring/camping. Also use Google maps and Oziexplorer with the free 1:250K Natmaps.

G'day, I reckon the Hema book is a better detailed book for touring W.A.

Enjoy your travels, (I live across the water from Denham at Useless Loop) a great part of the country.

Cheers,

I use QPA; it has most roads and tracks on it, but with small print for kilometres between points in pale blue again a green background, I find them hard to read.

Hi, we travelled the WA coast last year and used our hema navigator and we have hema Australia road and 4wd atlas , found them really good. Enjoy your trip, the WA coast is beautiful.
Travel safe
