This is a 1980 nautical chart of the Bligh Entrace to Eastern Fields in the Torres Straits off the North Australian coast.
It includes Ashmore reef and shows extensive detail of the reefs in that area and the shallow waters.
It shows a little wear and tear around edges, but otherwise in fabulous condition. It would make a lovely piece to frame and hang on the wall.
Old charts are hard to come by as once out of production, retailers are required to return stock to be replaced with new editions.
This chart came from a yacht that sailed these waters as it has been plotted where they sailed.
measures approx 72cm x 110cm across.
