Geordie Google?

Monday is your last chance to nominate Rottnest to get Googled.

We were so excited to read the beautiful island was a certainty to get ogled by Google - but when we rang the Google people they said Asher Moses was incorrect.

How can you get something like that wrong?

Anyway...the search engine behemoth is using a tricycle to photograph Australian places not accessible to cars.

Google's Street View trike is a 110kg modified bike with a mounted Street View camera and GPS system.

The photos it takes are used in its Maps Street View feature.

Google has four categories in which people can submit suggestions: city life, cultural areas, natural wonders and hidden gems.

Submit your ideas at

Entries close on Monday 8 February – winners will be announced on 25 February.
