To those who have never been to Australia, our slice of the world might as well be a fantastical place of dangerous creatures, strange tongues and general upside-downness. This amazing map of the country by Polish artist Karol, styled after something out of a Tolkien atlas, only reinforces the idea that if you're going to pay us a visit, best beware of dragons. Well, bearded ones anyway.

The map is available for purchase from Karol's Etsy store, with prices starting at $45. More expensive options include increasing the dimensions and even switching from 250gsm matte paper to canvas to give it a more authentic look and feel.

Karol accepts customisation requests too, if you'd like to change or add text.

If you'd like something more exotic, Karol has a bunch of other fantasy-themed maps for other locations such as Europe, the United States and Japan.
