Error D 16 Oct 1991 Goulburn Airport min = -3.3 – Taralga min = 12.6 – diff = -15.9 There is no sign of the -3 to -6 contour colour near Goulburn or anywhere on the map – so the BoM map is indicating Goulburn is in error. Goulburn Tafe has a blank but Canberra Airport was 15.0 which backs Taralga as being correct.
