Roger, where do get the water proof paper from?

I’m nervous about the topo map shortage of the future and my supply is very tatty indeed.

Just do an internet search on 'waterproof paper site:au' and you will tons of hits. A few dollars for a pack.
You will even find the stuff on eBay and Amazon. A common laser printer will do nicely.
A common international brand is 'Rite-in-Rain' - I have used that, but many other brands.
An A3 laser printer or an A3 photocopier is deluxe - I have reams of A3 copies ...

You can also get waterproof sleeves on eBay: also a good idea just for mechanical protection.

Cheers
Roger

I grabbed a set of these Sutmaps off Bruce at Wilderness Sports in Jindabyne. They are waterproof and tear proof. I really like them. They have just the right amount of detail and all three weigh less than one NSW topo. Because of their size they are very manageable in the wind.

There are only 3 maps available for KNP - Jagungal, Schlink Pass, Kosciuszko. These 3 maps cover the areas north of the Charcoal Range all the way to just south of Tabletop. I would prefer a set for the northern end of the park but oh well...
