Airservices provides a tool called WebTrak on its website which allows you to access flight activity of most aircraft over metropolitan areas. Using a map to display surrounding suburbs within 55km of a selected airport, WebTrak allows you to view information about arriving and departing aircraft, ranging from 40 minutes to three months ago. Limited emergency operations are not always shown on Webtrak.
