I have search through the old threads for a live flight tracking website but none of them have flights for Australia, only North America.
What are some I can use for Australian international and domestic flights?
Coverage only in the eastern states, relatively close to the cities. Sometimes ok, but not for me in Perth, or any flights leaving the coverage area, if you want to follow the plane. Simply, not as good as in Europe.
I think this one is good, especially for approaches into airports, etc, but nothing else. I also see that in Perth there is info about registrations for flights, however, in Melbourne not. Any idea why?

They have a feeder in PER - often watch inbounds to PER whilst listening to LiveATC....
Remember there will only be a feeder where there are people feeding, so for much of Australia with hardly any people it won't show any traffic.

Quoting kl911 (Reply 6): True, I forgot to mention that. It surprises me that in Europe so many people are feeding compared to the US or Australia, why is that? You only need one person every 300 km or so I think.
True, one only needs to look at planefinder.net to see there are plenty of people with the equipment uploading in the US, just not to FR24. Australia could really do with a feed at ASP, obviously places like Africa have problems with people feeding (although there is one at LAD and a really good one in the Maldives).
There are new feeders coming up all the time, just relies on people willing to pay for 500 bucks it costs for a feeder, and have a steady internet connection.
