Gundungura Map - 1st Edition

The Gundungura Map was compiled from investigations in the area by members of SURC and other bushwalkers with help from local bushmen, and drawings by Geoff Ford from restricted (military) aerial photographs - starting with local Parish maps showing Yerranderie Goldfields.

The map used by bushwalkers at the time was the 1932 black and white version adapted by Myles Dunphy of “Blue Mountains and Burragorang Valley” Tourist Map of roadways and railways from Mittagong to Richmond.

You can read more about Geoff's story in The Whys Of The Kowmung Country And Gundungura.
