    Maps of Australia

    I guess that Maps belongs in the Books Forum?

    Are there online maps of Australia?
    Are they detailed enough to pinpoint an exact address?

    Yes, neither seems to get me down to the level of detail I want.

    Expedia, MultiMap.com and Rand McNally aren't detailed enough. But it looks like the Austrialian Tourism Board has a good resource at http://www.arta.com.au/street_search.html that looks more detailed. And this site came up from a few places: http://www.whereis.com.au

    THanx.

    www.whereis.com.au pinpointed the address.

    www.arta.com did not even locate the town.

    Howard--I'm pretty sure some of these will run down kangaroos and koala bears.

    Try
    U Texas Lib Austrailian Map Collection
    Geoscience Australia National Mapping
    Wil Map Austrailia With Links to Town Maps
    The Word: Backpacking Austrailia
    Maps Australia and the Surrounding Region
    City Maps of Australia on Line
    Australian Slang

    It's 7:05PM Saturday where I am; It's 9:05AM in Sydney right now so some of the Aussies who have taught me a lot on this board should be up. I'm sure they know the best maps.

    Hope these links are helpful or turn out to be "good oil" as they say down under.

    Glad you found it. It's even more fun trying to find the streets where your ancestors lived 100+ years ago. But amazingly, with the Internet, even that's possible. I've found streets that have been renamed and gotten pictures of buildings from the 1800's. It's a good time to do Genealogy.
