Spy's from above

I noticed last night that Google Maps updated their aerial images of Australia. We had access to them them before but they were on hard-to-use and slow government sites. Now they are in Googles AJAX goodness and on some mega-fast servers. Thanks Google. Now all we need is some more local content - even basic towns ('Parramatta' - doesn't even give a result), and getting the 'Map' (street directory) side of it working would really be cool. It would also be good to get some better res pics of the Sydney CBD before moving on to the whole "local pizza shop" stuff that the U.S. gets. It look me a little while to find my house, but here it is. I wonder if Keyhole also updated the maps of .au in the KeyHole Viewer?
