If you were around in the 1990’s it’s likely you remember The Melbourne Map: a detailed illustration of the CBD and surrounding suburbs. The Melbourne Map – 1991 With a quarter of a century of changes to Melbourne’s landscape, (Southern Cross Station, Docklands, Etihad Stadium, Melbourne Sports and Entertainment precinct, Birrarung Marr, Crown and Southbank developments, Federation Square, Bolte Bridge, Eureka Tower, Melbourne Museum etc.) and so many other significant buildings, which now adorn Melbourne’s skyline – it was time for an update.

More than 3 years and 6,000 hours have been invested in the research and illustration so far – the detail is outstanding. So whether you live in one of Melbourne’s sky scrapers, work in the CBD, live in the surrounding suburbs or if Melbourne is just your go-to place to visit, this map captures Melbourne’s character in intricate illustrative detail, taking the viewer on a journey of discovery and familiarity. Additionally, and for the first time ever, the original 1990 Melbourne Map by artist Deborah Young will also be on display plus some of the few remaining copies will be available for sale.
