Point Gellibrand Heritage Coastal Park

There are plenty of seaplanes and aerial traffic here. Had to keep the quadcopter at a relatively safe altitude of 50m. Quite a few transmission towers here too so keeping the quad talking via wifi to the controller. It proved difficult flying here without Lightbridge. Altitude: 50m Shot with: Tarneit from the Sky by BT…

Williamstown

Williamstown, taken from Hatt Reserve. This beautiful gateway to the Yarra is just 30minutes drive from Tarneit down Kororoit Creek Road. Here there’re loads of large areas for families, off-leash dog parks aplenty, plus you’re sure to get some extraordinary sunsets with the CBD and Port Philip Bay in accompaniment. Ships can be seen coasting…

Serendip Sanctuary

Serendip Sanctuary is a gem that’s a 30-minute drive from Tarneit. Come experience the open grassy woodland and wetlands of the volcanic Western Plain and frolick in more than 200 ha of wildlife reserve.

Sunrise over Queenscliff

The lower mandible that guards the maritime entrance to Port Philip Bay – Queenscliff is a 70-minute drive from Tarneit. This makes it a great coastal getaway that doesn’t involve too much time on the road – and plenty of lovely sights along the way. Here we witness a beautiful sunrise over Victory Bight, with the Queenscliff…

Lorne, Great Ocean Road

Lorne, where bush meets beach is 90-110 minute drive westwards from Tarneit, the first large town out of Geelong on the Great Ocean Road. While the Tarneit plains may be a great flat place to build a city, the lack of topographical features can be a bore for the eyes. No shortage of breath-taking views…

Pipemakers Park, Maribyrnong

Not quite Tarneit, but Maribyrnong River runs not too far from Wyndham. For those of us who commute into the city from the west, this river has to be crossed at some point whether further upstream, or across the mouth where it meets the Bay under the West Gate Bridge. Here we can see how…
