What a time waster Google Maps is! Amazing photos though. Auckland and the Coromandel look quite different:
I don’t know how they took these but look at how the underwater mountains have shown up. Not normal photos! Could explain why Auckland looks fuzzy and way too green. It’ll be great when we can zoom in more.
Australians like to distance themselves from Indonesia and PNG and the cultures are worlds apart, but the photo makes it look like you can walk from PNG to Oz.
