The latest update to Google Earth contains some new terrain imagery around eight different parts of Australia.

Developed by the Google geo-engineering team, Australia was the only country to receive new terrain images this update.

According to Google, people planning outdoor activities and trips across the country now have access to a whole new level of information, contributing to Australia’s ‘virtual tourism’.

“Terrain view in Google Earth helps to show people around the world just how spectacular Australia's natural landscape is," a Google spokesperson said.

The new addition to Google Earth highlights some terrain surrounding Wollongong, Perth, Hobart, Geelong, Canberra, Cairns, Adelaide and the Whitsunday Islands.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
