Photography Down Under

Sun Aug 08, 2004 12:00 am

Hello:

I am considering a trip to Australia this fall to chase trains, but would also like to photograph airliners as well. I was wondering if anyone familiar with the situation down there could brief me on the situation at Sydney and Melbourne. Is the deck at Melbourne still open? Any information would be welcome, I have not been there since 1998 so I'm sure my information is stale.

Howdy Bill,

The deck at MEL is still closed. It doesnt look as though it will be opened again in the near future. For some up to date spotting info on both SYD and MEL, check out the links below.

The web site links that MELflyer provided are quite informative. Thank you.

Sam, I'm thinking of coming around November, but no plans are firm yet. Among other things, I have to get approval to take time off work. Hopefully this won't be a problem.
