Truganina Coastal Parklands Altona

Truganina Coastal Parklands Altona

Truganina Park has been created on the site of the former Altona Tip.

A feature of the park is the 100 Steps to Federation, a stone staircase made of basalt rock recycled from when the area was a clean-fill tip.

At the summit of the 17 metre high mound is a viewing area that provides extensive views of the local coast. On a clear day, Melbourne CBD and Port Phillip Heads are visible.

The sculpture at the summit, Time Beacon, is by artist Cameron Robbins.

A concrete stormwater drain through the park, which takes stormwater from the adjacent residential area of Altona Meadows, was restructured to form a filtration wetland, in which the stormwater is naturally cleaned before being discharged to Port Phillip Bay.
