Picture Australia - one search, many places

National Library of Australia hosts Picture Australia, a fantastic online image search service. Through Picture Australia, you can access the image collections of hundreds of cultural agencies and individuals in Australia and overseas by just conducting one search on the website:

For example, just typing in ‘Geraldton’ and clicking the ‘search’ button brings you 977 images from different periods and collections. Aaron Bunch’s 1995 black and white images of Geraldton and WA are particularly beautiful.
