Where & how do I download the geo Natmaps Empty Where & how do I download the geo Natmaps

I have gone around & around on the Natmap website trying to find what I need to download to get the desired basic Geo files for use on OziExplorer.  I have access to a couple of samples for West Pilbara (Yanrey SF50-9), provided by others, but need the base maps for other goldfield sites (all states really).  

So has anyone got a step by step answer to accessing the required data.

Thanks,

Thanks for the link Nightjar, I had been in here before and I was really no wiser.  But at the following address I have been able to find a map of Oz where you can select what you want to download.  Is this what you have used?

I hope that this is what I need, so will play with it for a while and see what comes out in the wash.

After a lot of messing around I was able to download Geological maps for specific areas, but I am not sure if these are the best ones to use as there is basically only a couple of very main roads and the geology info is very in your face.

Perhaps I need to find an alternative, what do others use?
