(PORT MELBOURNE) – (SANDRIDGE LOOKOUT) (MELBOURNE AUSTRALIA)
Port Melbourne is an inner suburb of Melbourne, Australia, 5 km south-west from Melbourne’s central business district. It is split between the local government areas of Melbourne and Port Phillip. The area to the north of the West Gate Freeway is in the City of Melbourne. The area to the south is in the City of Port Phillip. At the 2016 Census, Port Melbourne had a population of 16,175.
The suburb is bordered by the shores of Hobsons Bay and the lower reaches of the Yarra River. Port Melbourne covers a large area, which includes the distinct localities of Fishermans Bend, Garden City and Beacon Cove.
There is a nice walk from the Sandridge Life Saving Club out to Sandridge Lookout and back on Webb Trail – approximately 3km. The highlights of this short stroll are amazing views of the city across the water on one side, and a close up of the massive shipping cranes on the other. There is a viewing platform at the actual Lookout on the south-east corner of Webb Trail. The track is closed off at the point where I’ve marked the end of the walk below, although some older maps show it continuing around the container terminal.
