Hi guys, I am trying to find a website that has maps of Canberra. I tried Goolge but the maps i found didnt show enough area.
Anyone found a site that has a good selection of maps available to look at online?

You could try www.travelmate.com.au/mapmaker. Have to type in each suburb but it does provid reasonable detail

It is also a useful site for assistance in trip planning as ti will provide estimate of travel time from A to B. It is riasonably accurate at least west of the Great Divide.

Thank you so much for sharing that mate. I owe you one.

Out of curiosity, i looked at the mapmaker site. Interesting functions - but i tried it on a "trip" from Bridgetown WA to SA - full detail of where to turn i each town, street, roundabout, etc great detail - but WHAT A LONG WAY to get out of WA - virtually skirted all the way around the the coast.

Hi again Duncs,
I was wondering if its possible to find more maps from the same web address that you sent me as i cant work out how to go past the border of the displayed maps on this website u gave me...

http://www.cartoscope.com.au/maps/cap_cntry/Cap_Region.pdf

I find this to be excellent for a print out, but i havent worked if I can actually go past the border of the map being displayed. I went to the web site but had no luck.
Any ideas mate?
Thanks again for the site , it really is great

I was refering to road maps. Thanks anyways.
I found more than i was looking for thanks to the 2 that gave me web sites to check out.
Have a great weekend though. I'm off to the war memorial on friday then heading into Bendethera for the weekend to check the place out. Heard some good things about it, so i wanna check the place out to find out if i can take my bike and trailerin there for some serious riding.

Angelo, come via Captains Flat. And I can meet you on the Braidwood Road.

Hi Tony,
I will be heading down from Canberra so i figure i will be on Kings Hwy. My original plan was to follow kings hwy all the way to braidwood and start my trip from there.

But if you want to meet up somewhere, I dont mind changing things around. I am assuming i would turn off from Kings Hwy just out of Queanbeyan. I believe the road is called Captains Flat rd. My problem is, I cant see on my map where Braidwood road meets up if i was to do the Captains Flat road as u suggest. The only thing i have on my map is that maybe Braidwood road heads all the way to Araluen.
If you get time to reply tomorrow sometime, then i will do the Captains Flat route, otherwise I will stick to my original plan and head to Braidwood as the treck notes i have are from this site and written by Collin.
Just incase ....i am assuming that from Canberra ( where i am sleeping friday night) to Captains flat would be About 40 minutes drive ? if that is correct, let me know what time you will be at the meeting place and what the distance is from Captains Flat to Braidwood rd so I can calculate time of arrival. Meantime I will look around for a more defined map. Also let me know what Vehicle you drive so I can spot you. I will be on UHF10 just incase.

From the Canberra Airport its 40min to Captains Flat. Take that T/O on the Kings Hwy to Captains Flat, when you get there take the Braidwood Rd, the T/O is next to the Fire Stn, this is after a R/T to go up the "main street". I am metting two other vehicles 7k up the Braidwood Rd at 9.30.

This way is a lot quicker than down the Hwy.

We will be on ch 18. give me a call as you come into the Flat.

Tony.

Not sure where you are from, but Canberra deserves at least 5 days - Nat museum, Nat Library, Nat gallery, Parliment house (old & new),, Questathon etc etc.
Plus all the great drives in the Brindabella's
anyway !

Instead of using UHF 10 try one of the local repeater channels - 2 is best or 7 and 6 is in the Bungendore area. They are on the top of the Ranges and give great coverage.
I don't think I can make it to Bendethera - but have a good time - I hope my Trek notes are useful. It is a pity you are only going for one night as the 'loop drive' around the north of the 'valley' is a worthwhile trip.

Cheers
Colin
