The metre-wide printed metal map is mounted on a apricot-stuccoed wall in the grassy Newson Park. The map is oriented so that the True North indicator is pointing to the bottom of the map, at about 175°. It shows where you are south of Albury Street near the Public Playground which is shown between the Toilets and Monument.

It has a line-drawn map of the local streets with a comprehensive index, and also an extensive Legend on what can be found in the twin 'cities' of Harden-Murrumburrah.

The Map Legend has symbols for the following: Ambulance Station, Anglican Hall [Masonic symbol], Bowling Club, Burley Griffin Way, Bus Stop, Camping Area, Caravan Park, Cemetery, Council Office, Doctor, Fire Station, Golf Club, Hospital, Information Centre, Library, Monument/ Memorial, Picnic Area, Place of Worship, Playground, Police Station, Post Office, Railway Station, Rural Fire Service, School - Private, School - Public, Swimming Pool, and Toilets. [Unfortunately I wasn't able to get photos of EVERYTHING that was indicated!!] And with capital letters along the bottom, and numbers on the sides of the sign it was quite easily to identify the locations and streets.

'This sign was proudly sponsored by the Rotary Club of Murrumburrah-Harden and the Kruger Trust - 2008'
