Search for Location by Street Address

To search for a location by street address:

  1. In the Search bar, type the address you're interested in. Be sure to provide as much detail as possible to make your search term unambiguous.
  2. Click the Search icon.

The MapBrowser zooms to the street address you specified and places a green Location pin on the map. Click the pin to reveal more information about the location.

Go to a set of latitude and longitude coordinates

You can search for a location by latitude and longitude coordinates in decimal degrees. Here's an example that demonstrates the format:

@37.484905,-122.148646

To search for a location by latitude and longitude coordinates:

  1. In the Search bar, type an @ symbol.
  2. Enter the latitude and longitude coordinates in decimal degrees, separated by a comma. Remember to use a - symbol in front of your longitude coordinate for the western hemisphere.
  3. Press the Search icon.

The MapBrowser zooms you to your specified location address type in the Search bar the address you are interested in. For best results, format your search in this order: street number, street name, suburb/city or postcode, state. For instance:

  • 89 Haig Street, Gordon Park, QLD (street number, street name, suburb, state)

  • 14 Olympic Boulevard, 3000 (street number, street name, postcode)

 Providing the suburb with the street name will return more accurate results. For example ‘Smith Street’ is a broad search whereas ‘Smith Street, Dianella’ is a very narrow search so the results will be more accurate. If there are several potential options for an address, these will appear below the search bar for you to choose one.

The MapBrowser zooms to the street address you specified and places a green Location pin on the map. Click the pin to reveal more information about the location.

Online converters from degrees/minutes/seconds to decimal format are available, for example:
 http://data.aad.gov.au/aadc/calc/dms_decimal.cfm.

While In MapBrowser Classic you can search for coordinates without the @ symbol, but the search will attempt to find the closest known address to that location, rather than going to the exact coordinates.Address

Suburb

If you would like to explore a suburb, type in a suburb name into the find search bar on the map page and you will then be presented with a PhotoMap centered Nearmap image centered on this suburb. If this suburb name exists in different states, the search results will provide you with options to choose from, and you can select which one to view. For example, there is an Epping in both Victoria and New South Wales, Australia.
