Wrong location for Wauchope

Hi,

Whilst the map is correct, Wauchope is in NSW not the NT and is just west of Port Macquarie, a long long way from the NT.

Cheers,

You just beat me with your edit, Frommy, while I was checking out the Things To Do. The only thing on the list is the Devil's Marbles, so everything appears kosher except the little googlemap thumbnail on the caravan park page which is wrong.

Doesn't seem to be worth worrying about to me. Either you know you're in the Territory, or you don't.

No not a waste of time at all Frommy. It is a big problem with TA and google maps.

I have a similiar problem I have Winton Qld tagged on my travel map as a favourite, marked by a "Blue Star" but everytime I tag it, the tag "blue star" is placed on Tamworth NSW.

A very different place!

Hi,

Using Google maps the info is that it is 2947klm from the Wauchope caravan park in NSW to the Wauchope hotel in the NT.

If you click on the "Hotels" tab in green on the left of this page, it shows the Wauchope Caravan Park. It has only one review, stated to be for the caravan park between Alice Springs and Darwin.

It might be better described as Wauchope Well Caravan Park, but I don't think it's confusing as it's linked to the Wauchope Red Centre forum page - which is what we're on now. :)

Further to this: there is no Wauchope NSW forum and I can't find any entry for the Wauchope NSW Caravan Park.

TripAdvisor doesn't usually list caravan parks, but it's not a bad idea for Wauchope NT, given how little else there is.

As I said before, the only error seems to be the googlemaps thumbnail one and it ain't a biggy, IMO. Errors on Googlemaps are not uncommon and we can't fix them all.

Think of all coachloads of tourists heading to Wauhope that might get confused! They might think they are in the Alice or something.

Seriously, in the event that a tourist tries to access this information the chances are that they will know which state they intend to travel.

I mean to say what about the poor people that want to travel to Newcastle, NSW and end up in Newcastle, UK!

You might be interested to know that Wauchope in NSW is pronounced Wor-hope, while Wauchope in NT is pronounced Wor-k'p. Wauchope (Wor-k'p) is also a not uncommon surname in NT.

cheers
