Today we're excited to announce that updated Street View imagery of Australian towns and cities is live in Google Maps.

Places around Australia are now available in higher quality to help you plan your visits and show off your favourite places to friends.

Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House

Salamanca Place, Hobart

We plan to recommence our driving operations in Australia later this year, collecting new imagery from across Australia. You’ll be able to follow where our cars are operating, can read about our commitment to privacy in our blog post about the Privacy Impact Assessment for Street View activities in Australia and learn more about privacy on the Street View website.

We’re excited to publish this newer, higher quality imagery and hope you enjoy using it to explore and share Australia with your friends.
