Maps – free on-line digital topographic maps at QTOPO, they are now available at 1:10,000 for most areas. If you use the Avenza app on your smart mobile device, you can download the QTOPO maps in Avenza for live topographic mapping on your device. Or you can print the maps from QTOPO if you prefer paper map (batteries don’t go flat on paper maps). The club recommends always carry a paper map as back-up if you do use smart devices for bushwalk navigation / mapping.
