Die Happy Creek is about 50km north of Maitland in NSW - or at Longitude 151 44' E, and Latitude 32 17' S to be precise. Of course, if you didn't know that off the top of your head, you could easily find out by using the Gazetteer of Australia.

Gazetteer of Australia is the authoritative source of Australian place names, and is the ultimate resource for any application that requires the names and location of Australian towns, natural features, built features and more.

These applications can include:

  • locating a place;
  • adding value to a map;
  • showing place names in digital mapping applications; and
  • searching by place names in online mapping applications.

The data is sourced from State, Territory and Commonwealth authorities responsible for geographic names and is released annually on CD-ROM as a joint effort by Geoscience Australia and the Intergovernmental Committee on Surveying and Mapping (ICSM) .

The 2005 release contains the most up to date national place name listing and includes an additional 5000 place names over the previous release.
