Sydney 'blurred out'

In something a little off-topic I found today surprisingly much of inner Sydney remains blurred on google maps, due to what some say are fears of terrorist attacks!? Google says it removed the Hi-res images dues to image provider problems. However these images just happen to include; The Garden Island Naval Depot, the Lucas Heights Reactor, Parliament House and the Australian Defence Force headquarters in Canberra.

Found this on a article describing 51 sites blurred on Google Maps, check it here

Also have you ever seen Sydneys Oxford street from the air?...its quite..arty?!
