Great Walks topographic maps

Six of the ten Great Walks of Queensland have brochures with topographic maps. These have been produced by Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS), in the interests of visitor safety. The QPWS topographic maps provide safety information and good orientation with accurate topographic data to help walkers enjoy walking through some stunning scenery without getting lost.

On-screen versions—for trip planning only

See these links for on-screen, low resolution versions of the topographic maps to help plan your walking trip in these remote and often rugged areas. 

Be aware: 

The on-screen, trip planner versions of the topographic maps:

  • are a good trip planning tool.
  • can be used to help book your camping.
  • should not be relied upon for use in the field as printing them from your computer screen may distort the topographic data; for your safety, purchase a topographic map brochure to take on the walk with you.
