Sandy Point is a pleasant walk on reclaimed land that was once a dumping ground for the old Newport power station.
Sandy Point is a small area at the mouth of the Yarra River in Newport that is now home to indigenous plants and abundant bird life including plovers, spoonbills and sandpipers. The Spit, which is popular with fishermen, leads far out into the water and was created by the dredging of the Yarra River.
