Geocache Description:



This is the gateway that many international and domestic travelers pass through on their way to Melbourne and beyond.

Whether this is your first visit to Melbourne or one of many or if you call Victoria home ... Welcome.

Located 23km north west of the city centre, Melbourne Airport (also known as Tullamarine Airport or Tulla) has served over 750 million passengers since it opened in 1970.

The airport is located at Tullamarine which is derived from the indigenous name Tullamareena. There are three other airports that service Melbourne.  These are Avalon, Essendon and Moorabbin.

Melbourne Airports four terminals provide 53 domestic and 15 international gates serving over 30 airlines to destinations within Australia and around the world. The airport is a major hub for Qantas and Virgin Australia, while Jetstar utilises the airport as its home base. Domestically it is the headquarters for Australian airExpress and Toll Priority and handles more domestic freight than any other airport in Australia.

Expect GPS accuracy to be 3m on a good clear day. At the posted coordinates you’ll easily see the photo opportunity that you’re looking for on approach.

Logging Requirements

To prove you've visited Melbourne Airport you'll need to upload a photo of that big ‘Melbourne’ sign with your ‘found’ log with either of the following:

1. Photo of the you at the location; a face is not required in the photo.

There's no need to message me to approve your find as long as you've included your photo as requested you're good to log.

Any photoshopped photos or logs without the requisite photo will get deleted.
