If you have always wanted to see the Western Treatment Plant (Werribee) but haven't been near Melbourne, or haven't had transport, then you can get a taste - via Google Street View! For some odd reason they took their cameras down Farm Road and South Road, both inside the WTP boundaries. Unfortunately, they didn't get to Paradise Road or the Borrow Pits!

Go to Google Maps and search for 160 South Road, Werribee

I can sense you all reaching for a fresh new notebook to record your "Seen on Google Street View" List ...

Alright folks...i've just been playing with Google Streetview.
whoa...scary stuff. But it opens up a whole new view of the world. And
maybe a new form of twitching.

So i'm throwing up a challenge...who can be the first to find a pic of a
native australian bird on google street view. I've tried for about 10
minutes now, but no luck yet. Looks like the google mobile hasn't got an
access key to the WTP yet! ; )
