Parwan Curve/Bull Farm

Hi, wondering if anyone can help with directions on how to get to some good photography spots around the Bull Farm/Parwan curve please?

Have checked Google Maps but can’t seem to gauge the best vantage points from there.

My questions:

Would some good spots be accessed be from Woolpack Road and Vallance Roads?

Which would be best locations for both up and down trains?

Is a 4WD essential?

And are the good spots far from the road?

Also can a photo of Bacchus Marsh station be legally taken from the yard side without trespassing?

Thanks, Southern Aurora

There appears to be easy walking access from the Geelong-Bacchus Marsh Road towards stabling yard and as for good shots of trains, I reckon the bridge over the railway at Woolpack Road, facing the down direction should be fine for trains in both directions.

There is a good spot just off Woolpack Rd.

Driving North, just after the bridge over the line there is a small track entrance on the left hand side. It's a bit rough, but I have taken my XR6 Falcon in there a couple of times with no hassles so a 4WD is not required, just be careful. It offers good viewing, especially in the morning with the sun behind you as the AM peak services depart Bacchus Marsh.
