Click here to connect to the digital map. The map has been overlaid on Google Maps so that you can zoom in and out to better see what has happened to the terrain covered by the expeditioners. The journal entries of Leichhardt and three other expeditioners are linked to the relevant campsite locations.

The ADB has also produced a new hardcopy version of Leichhardt's map which can be purchased through the ANU Press's EView site
