Over 8000 hours and 3 years to research, hand-draw, and complete the project.

Melbourne is brimming with art, creativity, iconic architecture, spectacular gardens, fantastic food and of course, beautiful Melbournians! We couldn’t think of a better way to show our affection for this great city than by creating The Melbourne Map.

Many thousands of buildings, waterways, streets, gardens, and the quirky things we discovered during the research were documented by a small team of artists.

The Making of The Melbourne Map

Watch the short video below to see how The Melbourne Map came to life.

Here we share stories, news and fun stuff about our illustrated map-making adventures.

It’s no secret that we love a good puzzle here at the Melbourne Map. There’s nothing more satisfying than sliding a piece into place (especially the last piece), but we also know that large puzzles can be a little frustrating and can certainly test your patience! Here's some top tips for completing a 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle.
During the Melbourne map research, we discovered many characters and quintessentially Melbourne things.  We have added people, landmarks, signs and references to other areas outside of central Melbourne through thoughtful illustrations. Here are a few of our favourites. 

We’re thrilled to be part of Geelong Design Week 2021!

"The Geelong Map: Illustrating Our City” is being held at our studio 10am to 4pm Thursday 18th to Sunday 21st where we'll share our Geelong and Bellarine Maps (work in progress) along with some historical maps and illustrations of G-Town.

THE PEOPLE OF THE KULIN NATION ‘Kulin’ means ‘man’ or ‘mankind/people’. The vast region known today as Greater Melbourne, and much of central Victoria is the original domain of a millennia-old Federation of five hereditary estates; respectively the Boonwurrung, Woiwurrung, Taungurung, Dja Dja wurrung and Wathaurung people.

“Wurrung” means language. Each ‘wurrung’ community was, in turn, divided into smaller ancestral family homelands controlled by specific bloodlines, or clans. Each of the clans had a strong independence, with their own dialects and customs.

However, all were bound through a common bond of language, marriage, reciprocity, sacred sites, ceremony and judicial law. A pantheon of spiritual ancestors such as Lo-errn (Lohan) -the law maker, Mindeye - the great serpent of retribution, Karakarook - sovereign of earthly matters and women, Pallian -the bat, brother of Bunjil and creator of women, were just some of the myriad of magical and spiritual entities that dictated the lives of all Kulin population.

However, their most powerful deities were Bunjil, the Great Creator of all, personified by the Wedge-tailed Eagle, and Waa the Black Raven.

The wurrung groups who made up the Kulin Nation were only 5, of an estimated 38-40 different Aboriginal language groups which made up the lands we call Victoria today.

They represent a dynamic complexity of language, law, religion, customs and cultures a true multi-cultural state of nations. The Kulin nation continued on their ancestral country while civilizations around the world rose and fell over a sweep of 40,000 years. The culture and connections of Victorian Aboriginal people continue today.
