The Orographical Map of Australia is a detailed map of Australia showing the elevation profile of the country. The map indicates heights ranging from Sea Level to 5000 feet. This map was commissioned by the Department of Air in 1942, presumably to assist the aviation industry in planning its routes.

This beautiful map can come either printed on heavyweight 160 gsm paper or laminated. The paper version is perfect for framing under glass, and the laminated version is exceptionally hard-wearing as we use a true encapsulation of two pieces of 80-micron gloss laminate.

Alternatively, we can supply this map on 395 gsm HP Professional Matte Canvas using pigment-based inks - making the map highly durable and fade resistant. The exceptional clarity of printing makes this map a stunning addition to any room, and its high quality means that it will provide years of enjoyment.

The easiest way to hang your canvas map is by having wooden hang rollers attached top and bottom with a hanging cord on the top roller, so all you have to do is put a hook on the wall. The hang rails come lacquered in a natural timber colour.  

Note: Please allow ten working days to deliver hang-railed maps as they need to be attached by our framer.
