Hi feathery,
I bought the biggest one I could find from this website. Not 2 metres tho, more like 1.

Have you tried Map world.

You could try getting several pilot maps for VFR flying join them all toghether and it will be around 2-2.5 metres.
Pretty pricey unfortunately but the detaill will be great.

Hi

Any decent map shop along with some book stores (including internet sites) will have a number to choose from...some block mounted. You dont say where you are so bit difficult to be more specific.

Cheers

I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

Hi feathery

There is a Hema one 189 cm x 158 cm but out of stock. Lots of different types under one metre.

For our round Aussie trip next year, we got a nice size office desk map which is already laminated, from Office Works.
