Map Patrol East to West Simpson Desert Crossing

Posted on: 11/07/2014

Leaving from Brisbane today and headed to Birdsville, the team will spend at least five days exploring the Simpson’s major routes and side tracks while gathering mapping data for our print and digital map products before returning.

Live updates on the expedition will be posted on the Hema Maps Facebook page, and a trip report will follow.
