I am frustrated by some of the rubbish out there and need to find an atlas with decent detail (for starters - where the roads aren't marked by clumsy thick lines). Is there an Australian atlas with more detail than the better RACQ/NRMA regional maps. I'm willing to put down the money but just can't find one and have a feeling they don't exist.

I am happy enough with the Australian Road Atlas (I think it is Hema), and use it extensively in my travels, including my most recent trip to Tasmania. It is available (on special I think) from the shop here at Exploroz. I have the ring bound version. Might be worth a look.

Hey Bjorn,

I used the Hema Australia Road Atlas to plan and travel through WA/NT/Qld. Also found that when comparing routes travelled with others at camping grounds/NP's etc they would also pull out their copy of the Hema Road Atlas. It also has detailed 4WD maps of Cape York, Central Australia, Kimberley, Flinders Ranges and the Top End.

We supplemented it with more specific Hema maps (e.g. Fraser Island) for places that weren't covered so well.

Again, you can buy it (and the separate maps) through the shop online here.

G'Day Bjorn

This is becoming a bit of a Hema Fan Club.

I use Hema maps and they are excellent. You can also purchase them on CD for use with OziExplorer.
Life's great and it just keeps getting better
