Topographic Maps of West MacDonnell Ranges

Two 1:100 000 scale topographic maps covering the West MacDonnell Ranges in the Northern Territory have been produced in collaboration with Parks Australia, Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism and Northern Territory government agencies.

The maps are entitled West MacDonnell Ranges National Park Map 1 (western section) and West MacDonnell Ranges National Park Map 2 (eastern section) and are part of a pilot program to map Australia's Red Centre: Australia's National Landscapes External link icon. This program is an initiative of Parks Australia to identify and promote distinctive and inspirational destinations to domestic and international visitors. 

The maps contain satellite images on the reverse side and have applications for:

  • emergency management support and planning
  • navigation and tourist resources in a remote and rugged landscape
  • visitors seeking attractive and informative mementos of the Red Centre.

This short fly-through movie presents some of the iconic locations shown on the maps.
