Is there an application (ideally for Mac) that would allow you to visualize / display graphically all the files and sub-directories within a directory?

I use a program called Disk Inventory X. It has served me well for quite a while. And it's free :)

This program appears to be a remake of KDirStat from Linux, not that that's a bad thing. That does lend credence to its awesomeness, however. – UtahJarhead Oct 3 '12 at 2:34

If you don't mind working from the command line, the tree command does what you want. It's more or less standard on Linux and comes with Windows. I gather it's not installed by default on the Mac, but it's easy to obtain.

Thank you I will try this – Josh Sep 7 '12 at 11:54

Similar to @Josh's answer but for Windows, SequoiaView is a free tool that does a squarified treemap visualization of your directory structure.
