Many websites, including AustraliaLookUp.com.au and WhitePages.com.au have search capabilities. At AustraliaLookUp.com, an individual can search by last name only; last name and state; last name, state and city; or phone number only.
An AustraliaLookUp.com.au last name search results in a list of first and last name, address, phone number and a link to the Google Map for the address. The White Pages website has three search fields: surname, first initial and location. An individual only needs to complete the surname field in order to receive results, which include address, phone number and a link to a map. The White Pages also have online search capabilities for business and government listings.
PeopleSearch.com.au lists many sites for finding people living in Australia based on the information in which a searcher might be interested. For example, People Search lists six sites to assist with adoption searches and 26 sites for finding people associated with universities in Australia. Friends Reunited is another Australian website in which someone can search for people associated with schools, universities, clubs, the armed forces, streets or chat groups. Once a site visitor finds his friends, the site offers ?friend groups? where people can upload and share photos and discuss topics.
Facebook is another good source for finding people who live in Australia. As of February 2014, Australia claimed 12 million users of Facebook, with nine million of those being active daily on the site.
