This map is a souvenir of the 2017 Blackbutt Avocado Festival drawn with thanks to David Daniel and is designed only to be representative of the Festival Trail. It is not to scale. It is not accurate. It is a fun and whimsical interpretation of the 2017 Festival. It is a piece of art. Hope you enjoy the creative strokes of David Daniel.
