Welcome to the cultural and sports capital of Australia and the hometown of Orbx! With about a third of its current five million residents born outside of Australia, Melbourne’s skyline mirrors its inhabitants’ diversity, from Gold Rush and Victorian architecture to ultra-modern skyscrapers. Moreover, the city is home to Australia’s second busiest airport, Tullamarine (YMML) and its busiest seaport – and, relevant to pilots, it’s also where the “black box” flight recorder was invented in 1958.

 

While World Update 7 Australia added photogrammetry to Melbourne and about a dozen Orbx-made POIs, this new Melbourne pack has another 200 custom-made buildings and structures, along with the many other enhancements and features of our Landmarks series is known for.

 

Older architectural highlights are the Royal Exhibition Center, St Patrick's Cathedral, Parliament of Victoria, and Shrine of Remembrance, while modern highlights include the Melbourne Museum, Collins Arch, Dockland towers, and the soon-to-be-completed Shangri-La and Sapphire by the Gardens twin towers.

 

With Melbourne being such a bustling place, we’ve added animated features easily seen from the air, such as Metro trains on the viaduct between Flinders and Southern Cross stations, hot air balloons, and racehorses on Moonee Valley and Flemington Racecourse.

 

For helicopter pilots, the Children's Hospital, Royal Hospital, and Victoria Police Center Tower have landable helipads. In addition, there are several floating helipads along the downtown and port sections of the Yarra River.

The port areas west of downtown have received careful attention, with custom models for industrial buildings and container cranes, high-beam night lighting, and a diverse collection of ships and boats.

 

Outside of the city center, we’ve added custom models of the key VFR reporting points of the Melbourne Basin Visual Pilot Guide, such as Doncaster and Parkmore shopping centers, Laverton BoM tower, and Victoria Police Training Academy.

 

We’ve added animated features on land and in the air so keep your eyes peeled while exploring the city and its surroundings.

As with all our Landmark titles, we've made extensive enhancements to the entire area, terraforming, and improving the placement of vegetation and generic buildings.

  • More than 200 custom buildings and structures.
  • Detailed representation of the Port of Melbourne and adjacent industrial areas.
