I purchased the 2/3 charts which I found detailed enough for our trip from Brisbane to Adelaide.As we had a chartplotter and laptop with C-Map.Marked position on the paper charts every 2 hoursjust as a back up.
I purchased mine about 3 years ago and saved $1500.00 on Aus prices.
They sent them by U.P.S.
Cheers Steve

Ricko,

Not for Oz, but did get a bunch of charts for Philippines, Taiwan, Japan and North Pacific. Most are 2/3 size, intended as backup for computer charts, but also because my partner loves to plot on paper, whether from GPS or taking compass sights from land.

In many parts of the world you can find people who print out US, admiralty and local charts and sell them for cheap, but they often come from ancient computer files and usually are poor quality -- can't say that about Bellingham charts.
