Information

This spot just off the main highway near Bulla is accessed by turning into Oaklands Road. It's a great place to watch planes landing and taking off from Melbourne's Tullamorine airport.However, take a moment to reflect upon the ill fated Burke & Wills expedition that camped near here on their 2nd night on Tuesday August 21, 1860. Nearby was a hotel called the Inverness Hotel and on this land the Burke & Wills Expedition party made camp 2. The land on which the Inverness Hotel was standing was acquired to build the Tullamarine Airport and the hotel demolished in the 1970s. There is nothing to mark the site of Camp 2 (sometimes referred to as Bulla or Inverness).
