Photographer:Paul Finnigan [View profile]Title:Francis St, Yarraville, Melbourne, Victoria, AUSTRALIAAdded:Apr 04, 2016
Location:Melbourne, Australia
Photo Category: Shipspotting Locations
One of the best Shipspotting locations in Melbourne is at the end of Francis St Yarraville at the Yarra River in Melbourne with a purpose built jetty. View above is showing looking back towards the CBD area. All ships heading to Victoria Dock, Swanson Dock, South Wharf,Appleton Dock, Yarraville and Maribyrnong wharfs pass this point.
Best times for this location is from mid morning as early morning you would be shooting into the sun.
The best way to get here is via car or as I do by bicycle. The only way by public transport would be by train, the nearest station would be Yarraville or Spotswood both with about 1/2 hour walk away. The area is also popular with local fisherman so it can get a little crowded on weekends. Bring food and drinks as there a no shops near by.

Thanks Paul and Clyde for your pointers and directions. With Google Maps, Paul's directions are easy to follow. I was over to see the F1 Grand Prix in March and got as far as Victoria Harbour in the limited time available. Maybe next year.
I should likewise do a direction list and photos for the ship and mega yacht spotting sites around Auckland Harbour such as North Head, Queen's Wharf, the Viaduct Basin and Silo Park Marina for visitors from afar.
