Old series 1:50,000 Metric Maps?

Postby kanangra » Wed 29 Jan, 2014 6:42 pm

When I was over in NZ last week I noticed that they have reissued their maps and that the new series is smaller. I couldn't find any of the old series anywhere. I had been hoping to pick up a few that I was missing. Does anybody know if they are still available anywhere? I would like to purchase the following sheets: Wanaka, Arrowtown, and Eyre.

I'm not sure why you would want to buy the old series when you can download all the new topo50 maps for free from http://www.linz.govt.nz/topography/topo-maps/topo50.

Because I am an old fashioned sort of guy who likes to spread a large map out on the table and study it.
