This paper describes the results of a search of the existing Landsat ( 1 and 2) imagery catalogue for tidally generated internal waves over the continental shelves ofAustralia and New Zealand. The only areawhere such waves were observed was the Australian north-west shelfwhere they were found in abundance from the North West Cape to the latitude of Darwin. Wavelengths were in the range 300-1000 m with typical speeds of 0.5 1 m s-r, and spacing between wave packets of 25 km,
