They published this map in 1851 and at the time the colony of Victoria was born. NSW was stretching way up north where Queensland and Northern territory nowadays lies. Tasmania was called Van Diemen’s island.
This wall map is a great conversation starter hanging in your house, an office even in a restaurant or wine cellar. It has surely lead to great discussions about politics, history, geography and travel in ours. It is the land down under like it was in the middle of the 19th century. If you are interested in how the map of Australia has changed through the time you can read more about it on Wikipedia on this link.
The map is full of features. Such as on the edges, you can see drawings of native birds, kangaroos, Sydney harbour and Australian indigenous people.
The width of the map is 270cm and height is 190cm. This equals to about 106inches in width and 95inches in height.
The map looks as if it is almost 200 years old. Furthermore, details on the map are amazing. Edges of the canvas are worn out and we make the frame out of timber with ornaments and two iron hangings so it looks antique and genuine. This old map of Australia will add history to any room.
