Within hours of Google Maps Street View being launched in Australia, Domain.com.au have anounced that they are using the service to allow their customers to ‘virtually’ explore a neighbourhood and see a property as if they are standing in front of it. For information about Street View on Domain.com.au, visit  http://www.domain.com.au/streetview.

Domain.com.au property listings now allow users to take a virtual walk down the street, view what the neighbours’ place looks like, and even see how close the property is to shops, schools, parks and more. With Street View on Domain.com.au ,users can:

  • View street level photographs of properties in selected cities;
  • Explore the areas surrounding a property of interest by panning, rotating and zooming; and
  • Look at the property’s proximity to amenities and utilities.

If a listing does not have an exact street address, then Street View on Domain.com.au will show the street itself, for the viewer to explore.
