      zoom: 12,
      center: { lat: -28.643387, lng: 153.612224 },
      mapTypeControl: true,
      mapTypeControlOptions: {
        style: google.maps.MapTypeControlStyle.HORIZONTAL_BAR,
        position: google.maps.ControlPosition.TOP_CENTER
      },
      zoomControl: true,
      zoomControlOptions: {
        position: google.maps.ControlPosition.LEFT_CENTER
      },
      scaleControl: true,
      streetViewControl: true,
      streetViewControlOptions: {
        position: google.maps.ControlPosition.LEFT_TOP
      },
      fullscreenControl: true
    }
  );

JavaScript
