The map was great but it wasn't laminated like it said it was. It's just a poster.
Beautiful product, bad service
The product itself is beautiful and I absolutely love it. It did however arrive with a bend and tear in the corner. I noticed the damage after opening the tube before I even touched it. It may have been an honest mistake but it feels like one of those situations where a store gets rid of imperfect stock through their online orders because they are not dealing with the customer face to face and they know it's a huge hassle to exchange, especially since the shipping was insanely long. I ordered on 22nd Oct and they didn't ship it until the 15th Nov even though it said it was in stock. So it took almost a month to arrive.
Beautiful but couple of minor flaws
This is a beautiful and captivating map. Large, which is good. Two down sides. For me it is too flimsy and I will be getting it laminated properly to avoid damage from small hands and mishaps. Also, I discovered within a couple of minutes, quite by accident, a mistake. Bunbury, a town in the doubt of WA is labelled just west of Charters Towers in North Queensland 🤔. Hoping there aren't any more like that.
This is an incredible map that I would recommend to everyone - it's so big and so full of colour, information and detail. The illustrations are exquisite.
