Product Description

Review

"In a strange city, your sense of direction is only as good as the map in your hands. The best maps to carry are published by STREETWISE." -- Chicago Daily Herald

"STREETWISE is an absolute travel essential." -- Travel & Leisure --This text refers to an alternate Map edition.

About the Author

STREETWISE Maps, Inc. was founded in 1984 by Michael E. Brown. Before starting the company, he worked in international publishing and acquired a fascination for maps. In 1983 Brown envisioned a new format for a map; one which integrated convenience and modern graphics. He wanted to create a map that would not only visually entice someone to visit a particular city, but reward them as well with exceptional clarity, accuracy, and durability. By making the map as aesthetically pleasing as it was functional, Brown combined his sense of design with his love of travel. The result was an innovative consumer product. In the early years, Brown was not only cartographer and publisher, but shipping manager as well, delivering the maps around the streets of New York on a Harley Davidson motorcycle. STREETWISE Maps, Inc. eventually expanded into publishing maps of cities throughout the world. --This text refers to an alternate Map edition.

Format: Map
Streetwise Sydney is essential to experiencing a city rich in history. It is laminated, so it's easy to fold, and it fits almost anywhere - a breast pocket perhaps. The map color codes different points of interest and of necessity- i.e. the Royal Botanic Gardens, Restaurants and Hotels. This map made a trip to a foreign city not so intimidating, and I wouldn't want to use any other kind when I plan my next adventure.

Indispensable for tourists July 16 2008
By Boraxo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Map Verified Purchase
I love these maps, they never disappoint. The Sydney one covers all the parts of the city that most tourists are likely to visit, with sufficient detail to keep you from getting lost, even on the smallest streets.

There is no better map on the market today.

Not worth the money March 20 2012
By Mary G. Corson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Map Verified Purchase
I have had success with other Streetwise maps, so I ordered this one. Breaks from one side to another are in bad spots. It has nowhere the detail of the Lonely Planet map that comes with the mini-Sydney book. The free map our hotel and I am sure other hotels give out is much better than the Streetwise map of Sydney. Save your money...you will need it in very expensive Sydney!

Excellent "must have" for Sydney tourists Jan. 15 2011
By Walter W. Tuthill Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Map
As is the case with other maps in this series it tends to stop too soon. Than means the inner city area map does not cover the outer areas very well. But as an easily carried and indestructible chart it was indispensable. We use it with a small roll of Scotch tape. We use the tape to we note the various destination points on a day's itinerary, then peel off the tapes as we go along.

Not what I expected May 7 2014
By Ronald Bedell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Map Verified Purchase
The map had only the downtown area depicted and I thought it would be metropolitan area. So, I was disappointed.
