Mud Map

  • The term 'mud map' is an old Australian bush saying. It dates back to the early years of European settlement when much of the continent was still unexplored and unchartered by white men.

  • To outline directions to each other, outback travellers used to draw maps in the dirt or in the mud after it had rained. These in turn became known as 'mud maps'.

  • Often while sitting around a campfire fellow travellers would share stories, trade information and pass on the latest news. This news may have been the latest gold rush or possibly a recent flood and so the mud map became the focal point for describing the whole event.

  • The term mud map has remained in the Australian language particularly with people from the bush. These days however the maps are usually hand drawn on paper although you may occasionally see someone squat down and actually draw a map in the mud.
