Queensland Globe

Queensland Globe is a free plug-in developed by the Queensland Government. It allows you to view a wide range of spatial data through Google Earth, including:
  • addresses, localities and boundaries
  • road and rail networks
  • land parcels and tenure
  • areas affected by flood
  • topographical maps.


Imagery used is the latest and best available for public viewing. It consists of a single layer of either satellite imagery or aerial photography, with higher resolutions over built-up areas.

Customised searches

Through Queensland Globe, you can also search:
  • lots and plans—returns results for a property based on property descriptions from rates notices
  • Queensland Government data—searches several datasets, including Queensland place names
  • addresses—finds results based on the address for a property.
