I’ve been everywhere, man.

Google has just rolled out its nifty Google Street View in Japan and Australia.

The Japanese coverage is similar to the American coverage – limited to small areas around major cities (Tokyo, Osaka and Sendai). Have a look at the coverage map for Australia, though – they’ve driven almost everywhere.

Here’s the tiny town of Tibooburra, population 150. It’s right at the top left corner of New South Wales, fifteen hot, dusty hours’ drive from Sydney – and the Google cars have been there.

Here’s the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Of course the Google cars have been there.

Here’s a spot on the Plenty Highway, seven hours’ drive east of Alice Springs, on the arid border between Queensland and the Northern Territory. It’s in the middle of the dry heart of Australia – and the Google cars have been there. (Or possibly a Google four-wheel-drive.)

And here’s the Spearmint Rhino “gentlemen’s club”, on King Street in Melbourne. Have the Google cars been here? Gee, I wonder.

    OH MY GAWD….!
    They even came to Deni. When the hell was that? *searches for clues*
    Whenever it was, they drove past that roundabout with the clock at 4:10 pm.
    My car wasn’t in the driveway
    It was before they cut down the tree in my yard (7/2/08)
    It’s kinda annoying. They’ve gone down several useless back streets and missed the main drag where all the clues would be!
