It's one thing to use Street View on Google Maps to work out which building you're heading to for a meeting. It's quite another to use it for a virtual tour through Shark Bay. The iconic area in WA is one of the many featured on Google's new World Wonders site, which combines street view, YouTube videos and background information.
Other Australian sites featured are Kakadu National Park and the Royal Exhibition Building And Carlton Gardens. One note: while it's a great time waster, it's also pretty processor-intensive.
