Plane spotting places at Melbourne

Does anyone know the best place to plane spot at Melbourne. I usually go operations road but the best I can get is this


If the terminal has Windows that can be good. I’ve never left Europe so I can’t be too much of a help, but Google can always be your friend. Ask him.

That’s a good spot but I love being able to see the side of the runway. I’m not tall enough to get a good shot over the fence.

Climb over the fence , you will be able to get up nice and close then 😜


Tom, the best place to spot at MEL is being in an actual plane. I spotted an A380, A330, 747, 767, 777 and a 787 from the Virgin Australia 737’s window last time I went there, which was about a year ago.


Your photo looks pretty good as it is.

This spot is pretty darn good. What you need is a longer lens. Maybe go a little closer to the centerline of the runway so you can get nice 3/4 head-on, 1/4 side shots.
