This set of detailed maps cover the Maryborough goldfield in Central Victoria and include the surrounding settlements of Havelock, Carisbrook, Craigie, Timor, Alma and Adelaide Lead. They have been compiled from extensive research of early survey maps, reports and other Mines Department records, contemporary newspaper articles and local knowledge. These maps highlight the difference between private and public land. Also included are current roads, bush tracks, dams, houses (not sheds), alluvial gold workings and reef mines. The author has driven down the roads shown on these maps. Whilst compiling these maps over 100 place names that have not been on other previously published maps have been identified and included here. Permission for access or for some activities maybe required for some pubic land. Bush tracks, their names and other information is subject to change or misinterpretation. These maps are intended to be a guide. Weila Publishing accepts no liability as to the inaccuracy of these maps.

I can see John Tully has put a lot of research work in preparation of these maps. He should change publishing company however. Poor quality colour printing on some maps. Some pages in Castlemaine book looks like 3D printing eg page for campbells creek really bad on page 12. Ditto photo on p18
GPS co ordinates nice touch.
Yet to use this publication.
The scale indicator could be in the same place on each map.
