Australia Driving Distance Calculator?

Can anyone reccommend a good website that has a driving distance and drive time calculator for Australia. Preferrably one that has a good range of destinations, not just the major cities

Be careful with some of the time/distance calculators. Most of them assume an average speed of 60km per hour... including on 110km/hr roads so what is an hour trip can show as almost 2hrs...

Use the distances but assume (if it's between two centres not suburban) an average of around 90km/hr to work out time..

I don't like the whereis directions. It has given absolutely bizarre directions for routes around Sydney. In planning NT trip, it took strange routes too. Like via the old stuart hwy with correspondingly ridiculous trip times.
