Adding on a site for directions anywhere in Australia there is a good site www.whereis.com. or www.whereis.com.au

You can type in detailed information such as street name and number of your starting point and your destination or just names of locations and the state/territory they are in.

Click on 'get directions' and it gives you detailed directions including number of kilometres and time involved. You can also view and print out a map of the route.

Thanks for starting this thread, Angelnot1 - it's a great idea.
