This set of detailed maps covers the Talbot and Amherst goldfields in Central Victoria and include the surrounding districts of Daisy Hill, Emu and Caralulup. 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 80 place names that have not been on other previously published maps have been identified and included here. Permission for access or for some activities may be required for some public land. Bush tracks and sometimes even their names are subject to change. These maps are intended to be a guide. Weila Publishing accepts no liability as to the inaccuracy of these maps.
