Where Is It?
The link below will take to to the Australian Government's Geoscence website. Tick the I accept box and you will be taken to a page with a map of Australia. If you click on any spot it will zoom in, continue clicking and it will continue zooming. While not as fast or as fancy as Google Earth, and not photographic, it will often go down to street level enabling you to see locate everything from cities and towns, beaches, rivers, and as mentioned often streets.
There are another couple of very useful features of this site. One will tell you distances between places. However, this is not road or air distance, but, as they say, as the cocky (cockatoo) flies, based o the curvature of the earth/great circle method. But it's useful to get a general idea.
And this last is one we find very useful - it calculates sunrise, sunset, twilight etc. We use it all the time to calculate these when designing itineraries so clients aren't driving in the dark, know when to be on the Sydney Taronga ferry to watch the sun set over the Bridge and Opera house, what time the penguins will be wading ashore at Phillip Island and so on.
