Rename[edit]

I moved this from "Port Phillip Bay Drive" (capitalization problem). -- Evan 13:16, 10 Aug 2003 (PDT)

Um..aren't street signs capitalized that way? --Jiang 18:04, 11 Sep 2003 (PDT)
They are - but this wasn't a road sign. I goofed. The article's about a drive by car around Port Phillip Bay in Victoria :) KJ 00:38, 12 Sep 2003 (PDT)

Could this be renamed to eliminate that confusion? Scenic drive around Port Phillip Bay of simply Drive around Port Phillip Bay? --Jiang 01:04, 12 Sep 2003 (PDT)

Better? KJ

Purpose?[edit]

I'm not sure about the need for this article. There is now a Mornington Peninsula page and one for Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula (which may or may not be split in two eventually). At present this article is actually mostly about Mornington Pen and I wonder whether the relevant material should be moved to the Mornington Peninsula page and this one deleted. I don't have strong feelings about this though I really don't favour one of the alts which might be to bundle Mornington Pen, Geelong and Bellarine Peninsula all into this article. Thoughts?

I agree that there's a bit too much overlap here. I'm not a great fan of the scenic drive articles in general though. Articles should really consentrate on the place and then give options for see it (walk, drive, bus, etc). I'd hate to see "Scenic walk in Blah" "Scenic bike ride in Blah" "Scenic bus ride in Blah" and no article on Blah itself. I'd be happy with moving this to Mornington Peninsula, but I no nothing about the area itself... I say plunge forward and do itMajnoona

VFD Discussion[edit]

  • Delete. This itinerary is still at outline status and has not received a substantial edit since March 2007, long past the one year deadline specified in the deletion policy. -- Ryan • (talk) • 12:08, 15 March 2011 (EDT)
  • Keep. This looked quite useful, and not that far from usable status, to me. – Vidimian 13:54, 21 March 2011 (EDT)
    • Based on discussion at Talk:Port Phillip Bay scenic drive, would a reasonable compromise be to redirect this article to Mornington Peninsula? I'm still of the opinion that it's not usable enough to merit keeping as a standalone article. -- Ryan • (talk) • 12:46, 16 April 2011 (EDT)
      • Any thoughts? Barring further comment a redirect seems like the best solution. -- Ryan • (talk) • 13:42, 23 April 2011 (EDT)
Actually this itinerary includes Bellarine Peninsula in addition to Mornington Peninsula, but as it doesn't include much information about Bellarine, it might be sensibly redirected to Mornington Peninsula. – Vidimian 02:58, 25 April 2011 (EDT)

Result: Redirected to Mornington Peninsula. -- Ryan • (talk) • 23:30, 26 April 2011 (EDT)
