Eldon 1-50,000 Topographic Map Tasmap  

The most prominent feature on this map is the small mining town of Queenstown, with its surrounding ‘moonscape’ appearance. This mountainous area was first explored in 1862, with alluvial gold being soon after discovered at Mount Lyell, prompting the formation of the Mount Lyell Gold Mining Company in 1881. The mountains surrounding Queenstown have unusual pink and grey hues caused by the conglomerate rock composition of the two most adjacent mountains.

The locally named 99 bends, located on the Lyell Highway just out of Queenstown, is a favourite for Targa Drivers and tourists and takes in some rewarding scenery. To the east of Queenstown is Lake Burbury, a large Hydro lake formed by the building of two Hydro dams in the 1980s. The majority of the map is covered by the Franklin – Gordon Wild Rivers and Cradle Mountain – Lake St Clair national parks.

The design of the 1:50 000 Map Series provides clear and accurate portrayal of topographic information, with symbols and map content giving enhanced depiction of buildings, hill shading and a simplified classification of vegetation.
