AvPlan includes a terrain database which covers all of Australia at a resolution of approximately 1km square. A view of terrain height based on your current altitude can be enabled on the En Route page.
Terrain which is 1500ft below to 500ft below is yellow.
Terrain which is 500 ft below you, and higher, is red.
