Good find. Makes sense to post it here. I'll make it sticky as it will be useful in the future.

Also: If you are a member of the RAA their online service has downloadable maps.

If you're interested in birding around the Adelaide region, BirdsSA (http://www.birdssa.asn.au/sites.htm) have some good info. They provide maps and bird lists for each area too.

Most of the locations are also Conservation Parks, so generally offer more than just bird photography. :)

Hi MattC, I just tried to use the link you posted here but the site must have changed its address as it now says that the page no longer exists.

Maybe try this newer link to National Parks. http://www.environment.sa.gov.au/parks/Find_a_park Hope it helps. :)

Don't know if this helps...we have a map of the Adelaide Hills called 'The New Adelaide Hills Road and Link Map'. Had it for a few years now and it has been invaluable for all those off the beaten track roads that are not on major maps. Where we live we aren't even in the map book! It covers north from Tanuda down to Strathalbyn, across to Murray Brigde and back west to McLaren Vale and the city.

There is a publishers phone number if you want to enquire...8339 0000.

We used it this weekend to come home from Mt Barker to Ashbourne via all the little dirt tracks. Invaluable!

I think most hills news agents or tourist info places sell it.
