It may still come as a surprise to most residents of Dane County, WI that on the other side of the Earth, about 2000 miles WSW of Perth, Australia, sits a remarkable chain of islands. This antipodal archipelago in the southern Indian Ocean bears an uncanny resemblance to our own Yahara chain of lakes.
Though accounts of the islands' first discovery by western explorers remain unreliable today, our team of modern-day explorers and historians is working diligently to fill the gaps in this amazing tale of South Sea adventure and intrigue. You can keep somewhat apprised of any progress in this exciting journey of discovery by reading this website's blog page, as our Island Bureau Team occasionally updates us.
If you should ever wish to lend support to our cause, please consider the purchase of one or two of the maps now available on our SHOP page. Your contributions will help keep our crew sailing and surveying.
MadisonTropic is the exclusive outfitter to the Dane Archipelago and officially licensed vendor of the famous “Lost Map”. We also carry the updated chart of the ongoing surveying expedition of the Islands of Madison and Dane Sea.
These beautiful maps are printed on a sturdy 100lb gloss poster paper giving them an elegant look and feel.
Be sure to take a souvenir or two home with you when its time to return to the cold, grey, north.
