How do the GPS Google Maps work?

Each track has been walked and mapped in detail using GPS technology. We then upload the raw data to Google Maps and add details to the map such as entrance names, parking, toilets, water, picnic areas and playgrounds. We also map features such as waterfalls, significant trees, glow-worms, historic and cultural landmarks and important walking structures such as some bridges, river crossings, stairs etc.

Using the Google Map

Using the Google Map is easy and enables you to have a much enhanced walking experience – exploring aspects of a walk you may have otherwise missed.

  1. Click on the link for the map you want
  2. Allow it to open on your phone
  3. Look for your blue location dot to show on your device. This should depict your exact current location on your Google Map.
  4. As you walk, your blue dot will move on the map, showing you exactly where you are all the time.
  5. Zoom in and out on the map to see more or less detail of the track or where you are in relation to the overall walk. On many phones, zooming is completed by using two fingers on the screen – opening your fingers increases the map detail, closing fingers together reduces the map detail and lets you see a wider area. To move up and down on a map – again use two fingers but drag them around the screen together.

The two links below provide couple of examples of our popular walks that have Google Maps:
