You seem to have 4 different edges to the map, I have circled them and am just wondering why the different styles for the one map?
Just noticed as posting this, at Blue mountains national park, you have a white glow poking its head out from under the mountains on the left (just above the yellow line). Is this necessary and if not, can it be removed.
My point is that this whole left side of the map is a single color, lifted up beyond the rest of the map, it does appear that this whole section of the map is flowing over the remainder of the map, the beveling is just way too strong.
What koontz pointed out I see also, parts of the beveling putting lighter spots in odd areas, I see also, a artifact of the overbeveling. You don't want texture fine, but the bevel has to go.

Nice but not necessary.Could I ask for a different colour for the mountains as they are very close to the territ colour. I take it they are the blue mountains, but I can see some brown in the photo you used and that should make the pop out more. As for the hand drawn side of them, I have no problem with that part.
Yes you can ask, but i don't think that is in the best interest to add more colour to that section, as it might only look confusing and ugly. Yes there is a solid sandstone ridge vertical drop looking back from the three sisters, but i don't think it is inportant enough to warrant what you request.Between blue mountains and Warragamba, you have a road cut out of the mountains, can you do something similar between Warragamba and Sydney university along the same line. I know you have the cut away further south.

chapcrap, these edges replace the previous bevel as you know.
the argument before was it was too strong.
so i changed it and now it is not uniform.
the other thing is that these lines replace contour lines of sort and i am sure you have looked at contour lines and seen that the distances between lines is hardly even uniform.
so to me, that is not an issue, and uniformity is not something i am totally after with this effect.
I'm talking about how the effect coming out from the terts is not the same width all the way around? You want that to be random widths around the edges? That looks really bad, IMO.

1. Some of the Territory names such as Mosman, Manly, Woy Woy go over the outline. Remove the outline under the names for an easier read.
2. The outer glow around the text in the legend and mini-map. I don't think it is really needed considering that the background is a light enough color. You can either remove the outer glow or tone it down a couple of notches.
3. The out glow around the text in the landmark areas, I think you can remove the glow all together.
4. The cross walks on the small look good, but on the large they are all messed up. Probably from enlarging them.
5. There is what looks like a smudge here down by Jamison Valley:

i prefer it have it where it is as it fits better with the consistency of the others in the mini-map i.e. all on their territories where possible; the only reason northern beaches is off its territory is because it would be too close to the North Shore bonus number and there is very little room on northern beaches for it.
