Also the other major airports in Melbourne are located in suburban areas with limited room for expansion
Which is the big problem with the proposal IMO.
Avalon Rail-link would branch off from the Geelong line.
One station branch lines are always difficult to serve in terms of stopping patterns (See here)
If they slewed the whole Geelong line allignment towards the airport, and made it a through station that would be a practical operating model, but a one station branch dangling of the mainline is a crappy way of running things.
On the contrary, thats why I don't see it getting up. Because a bus would be so much simpler and quicker.
Lara station is already pretty close(short bus ride), so it's pretty hard from that point of view not seeing the project go ahead.
Google Maps says it's 11 mins from Lara...Could easily work that with a fleet of 3 or so buses.

Seeing as they have parks in other parts of the world where it snows for half a year. I don't see the climate of Melbourne being an issue. Not even for a water park. But definitely not for an amusement park.
it is a shame, with such a large population and suitable surrounding areas for a theme park you would have thought it would have been done by now. i guess it probably doesn't have the suitable climate here tho for parks huh
I agree, it would be much more successful if you put it in a place far from dense civilisation. In this country that isn't something we don't have. If you built in a populated area, there would be serious restriction problems, just take a look at the Luna Parks (Sydney and Melbourne.)
I don't think a rooftop theme park would fly, for a number of reasons. I think inner city locations are a poor choice for theme parks...Much better to pick a location with plenty of land surrounding. I feel this way because: -Noise complaints from surrounding residents in Southbank, and reduced amenity for people staying at Crown (Crown seems more positioned as a luxury entertainment product, not a go wild/have fun type thing like Vegas) -Limited space to actually build anything good. -No space for future expansion to keep guests coming back. Side point, I'm interested to know what this "elsewhere" location is for the tennis courts and the hotel gardens? "Somewhere" I presume?
