About Tullamarine, Australia
Tullamarine is one of the suburbs in Melbourne, in the Australian state of Victoria. It is located 17 km north-west of Melbourne's central business district and is home to about 6,000 people. The suburb combines residential areas and light industry, and its main claim to fame is that it gives its name to Melbourne's international airport.
Car hire in Tullamarine gives you access to Sharps Road, which runs east-west close to the southern boundary of the suburb. A single carriageway road until the late 1980s, Sharps Road is now a busy dual-carriageway that offers an alternative route between Melbourne International Airport and the Western Ring Road.
Tullamarine is a flat area that experiences hot, northerly winds in summer and cold southerly winds in winter. The residential section is enclosed by a circular loop of the Moonee Ponds Creek. Tullamarine also includes the smaller residential area of Gladstone Park. Tullamarine is divided from Airport West by the Albion-Jacana railway line, in the south of the suburb.
