I blogged on Wednesday about Google flying their plane over Sydney on Australia Day (today) to update their Sydney imagery for Google Maps. I've been informed that Tourism Australia had written a huge 15x2 m ‘AUSTRALIA.COM’ with their kangaroo logo into the sand at one of my favourite beaches, Bondi Beach (next to the life guard tower in front of the pavilion). The Google plane is scheduled to fly over Bondi Beach between 9 and 9.30 am Australia time. What a way to advertise your website aye!
Update: Here's a shot of the Google plane flying above Sydney! (Thanks piximelly)
Update: The flyby images are now LIVE on Google Maps.
