The way Aussies search every day on Google is at risk from new Government regulation

People around Australia - whether they’re students, businesses, nonprofits, researchers or creators - are using Google tools to help improve their lives every day.

Google Australia started with just one person in 2002, and has grown to over 1,500 people across Sydney and Melbourne today. With more than 700 software engineers in Australia, our local team works on products like Google Maps, Chrome, Photos and more. Google is committed to helping Aussies find new ways to collaborate, reach audiences and get things done.
