Contours Australia: Where to find it?

Hi all,

Some of you may remember Contours Australia. If it needs more explanation, it's 10m or 5m contours overlay for your GPS.

I had both the 10m and 5m versions but over time have lost them, they are still on my GPS, but I just don't have the files on my GPS.

Does anyone have any idea where I can find them again or could send them on?

thank you :)

Thanks for the links :) :)


I see the links for the first URL are broken, the second one is only for the 5m contours. I was hoping for the 10m.

You may be better off with the OSM Maps for Garmin GPS - that has the contours as well

I will see if I can find the older 10 and 50 metre sets in my archives somewhere

I had a dig through some old hard drives, but I can't find the 10m. I have the large 5m downloaded around 2010, but it appears the same as the 2Gb google drive link above.

I don't have the contours file on my Garmin handhelds anymore either since moving to OSMs from Garmin's AU/NZ Topo V4. tastrax suggestion for use of andrewp's OSM maps is pretty good. Since having them on my Garmin devices, I don't use the Garmin Topo AU/NZ maps anymore .

I have Contours Australia 2.00 - which claims to be 10m contours. It's 630mb though, so may be tricky to share.

I also have contours_australia_5m_win32.zip - 2.16GB - but sounds like you're not interested.

Hi Tom,

I am interested in the both the 5m and 10m files, but pref the 10m as I recall it loads faster, though nothing really loads quickly on my Etrex 30.

I will PM you and I we can exchange email addressed and share on DropBox. I have a quite large quota on that.
