Australian language question: bitumen

Do Australians typically refer to the black paving material on streets as bitumen? Other names I know for it include macadam, blacktop, and asphalt. If an Aussie were walking down the middle of the street, what would s/he call the material s/he is walking on?

Thanks muchly in advance!
