The colour scheme kind of reminds me of the New York & San Francisco maps, vibrant.
I'm not too keen on the font or rather the fact that it looks pixelated (at 100%), as if it was enlarged. It makes some labels and letters look blurred.
It might be worth trying a different font that is sharper at that size.

Also, why not go for a more Aussie style map frame??

So...what tert do u live in Hood? Personally i like the Advanced Town area, but also seems to possibly be an off grid area, to far away from the town, according to the map? If it is a 20 -30 mins drive to the center - no problem.

i live in the light blue region. 
I've been living on the Gold Coast for bout 10 years, but travelled outta town for work, so still slowly getting familiar with the inlands, but the map helps. partly a reason i wanted to do it..
advance town was the most intriguing part of making this. I knew about there being a Dam those ways, but didn't realize there was that much lake water..i have yet to take a drive there, and it's only about 30 minutes from my place, says google maps :) 

computer is a bit slow atm for making maps.. will get around to editing the font/frame

That land bridge there seems a little goofy. Do they need to connect? It isn't that far to go around. But another beautiful map by Hood.

The land bridges could do with being reduced in size, because in places the they eliminate the rivers from scene, creating no intuitiveness.

i've reduced the bridges sizes. that bridge coomera/helensvale is the main bridge of the gold coast that's the main reason it's there.
i doubled up a layer on the labels..wondering if it makes a difference in the pixelation.
i couldn't find an alternative australia style frame that suited.

For the one land bridge that is shared, could the line be more blurred and not so sharp?

Only other comment is you lose sight of the river north of the mountains be nerang. Could the river run from gilston along the mountains? Right not it looks like it goes under (probably is snaking through in real life).

But I think it looks good.

shared?

are you meaning coomera/helensvale landbridge , there is another shared one carrara/nerang.

i'm not sure i can pull off the river through the mountains..as i did try it before.

Rivers are impassable as well as mountains, so I suggest either moving the mountains slightly left and meandering the river around their bases, or having two columns of mountains with the river in between.
What we don't want to end up with is ambiguity on any impassables, I would personally prefer clarity for the ease of the game rather than perfection on geography or topography, which may require them to be left as they are.

For the bridges, I agree with dough_boy.
Simply over-spray (airbrush / paintbrush) a tiny bit of each colour into the other colour and you'll have a gradient rather than an abrupt colour change.
