Estimated travel times

The estimated travel times for map routing are calculated using average travel speeds dependant on the road classification and mode of transport.

No consideration is made for traffic conditions, traffic lights, or other barriers and factors that may otherwise impede or enhance the estimated travel time.

Below are the average speeds used in our calculations:

Main roads:
90km/h
Roads of major importance:
60km/h
Other major roads:
50km/h
Secondary roads:
50km/h
Local connecting roads:
40km/h
Local roads:
40km/h
Local roads of minor importance:
35km/h
Other roads:
25km/h
Bike & walking tracks etc:
10km/h

The above stated average speeds are combined with the calculated travel distance to estimate the travel time.

Travel time is rounded to the nearest minute and thus the sum of the travel times for each instruction may not equal the total travel time for the entire trip in some circumstances.

Estimated distance

The estimated distance for map routing is calculated using the departure and arrival streets input by the user. Distances are derived from the road network rather than 'as the crow flies'.

Additional notes

The route presented is considered the simplest route between the departure and arrival address, using higher road classes (main roads) where possible.

In some cases route numbers are used on the maps rather than the known road names. This occurs mainly on Freeways, Motorways and Tollways.

Currently map routes can be generated within and between all capital cities and some major population centres such as the Central Coast in New South Wales , Wollongong , Geelong and the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria , and the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast in Queensland.

Australian cities contain many locations which are known as 'localities' rather than 'suburbs'. Localities do not have defined boundaries and often fall across multiple suburbs. When planning a route, the suburb name in a city should be used rather than a popular 'locality' name. For example use 'Box Hill North' or 'Surrey Hills' rather than 'Mont Albert', or use 'Darlinghurst' instead of 'Kings Cross'.

The map data used within the Directions Tab on this website contains the same high quality navigational attributes as used by our In Car navigation database.
