Free Topographic Maps of Australia - Getlost Maps

Moved to Forum: Original Link

I found these while planning a hike and it's a great resource.

From the site:
Getlost Maps puts feature-rich topographical maps of Australia at your fingertips, completely FREE, for you to download and use any way you like.

  • They cover all of Australia at various scales from 1:250,000 up to 1:25,000.

They will work on your iPhone, Android phone, tablet, iPad or laptop. Use them with OziExplorer, Avenza, Google Earth, or any of a dozen other bits of software, or just use them as images like a regular map. You can even print them out if you want, and use them on paper while you ride your horse and buggy to the store.

Use them in the car, on the bike, on a horse, in a whale, in a canoe, on your skis, on your feet, or on your bum sitting in front of the campfire, working out where to go tomorrow.

From the creator:
I hike, bike, 4WD, paddle, ride, hunt, cross country ski, snowshoe and generally get out and about any chance I get.
I originally built these maps because I wanted them to exist, for myself.
Then I thought, maybe you could get some use out of them too.

Now here we are.
Enjoy.

    Most are 1:75 000 which is ok for planning but not much else.
    I know Queensland has a free service to download 1:25 000 at QTOPO. Does any other state offer similar? Keen on stuff for Tassie.

    Where do you find the 1:25000 maps for QLD? I can only find 1:100000. Can you send a link?

    I don't really get how to download and install it on Android. I download avenza and go to Google drive but do I have to download the maps one by one?

    That's what it seems like.

    You can have all NSW topos for free, courtesy of the NSW government. As an example, go to maps.six.nsw.gov.au/etopo/geopdf/25k/9231-3N%20TOUKLEY.pdf .

    As each NSW topo is updated, it ceases to be printed in hard copy, so they government has released them all electronically. They can be used in an app called AVENZA, and they're geo-located, so you can see yourself on the map, mark waypoints etc. Avenza is free if you're happy with only three maps at a time, or you can pay for the app and have unlimited. I've never needed more than three.

    Looks like the Tassie stuff is here:

    Just have to figure out how to print at a set scale.
