-While this can be done in theory using a virtual raster, I have had poor performance with this. Any operation seems to result in screen redrawing, so moving around and zooming in and out is quite slow and painful.+While this can be done in theory using a Virtual Raster, I have had poor performance with this.

 +Note that while most of the eastern ranges, where a lot of bushwalking happens, are 2m DEMs, the coast is typically 1m, and the western slopes and plains are 5m (with major rivers 1m!). QGIS appears to merge DEMs to the highest resolution (ie a combination of 1m and 2m DEMs will be merged to a 1m resolution output file). This may not always be desired. The 1m DEMs can be downsampled to say 2m in QGIS using the Warp (reproject) tool with an Output resolution of 2.
