No our mates down-under have the same functionality at their finger tips when using Google maps... according to the Google Weblog (http://googleblog.blogspot.com). Searching for dirdctions to Bondi Beach... how about a Thai restaurant near the Opera House? No worries mate... Google Maps can point you there. This from the blog... We've expanded service to include Australian business listings, driving directions, and support for Google Mobile Maps in Australia. Check out the functionality at http://maps.google.com.au/... no doubt come cool mashups will follow! Are you developing a Google maps mashup for Aussies? If so be sure to tell me about it.
