You could be referring to the eastern end of the east-west runway approach. The northern end of the north-south runway has a perfectly safe access to the viewing area at the roundabout (entry off Oaklands). I have viewed aircraft approaching from the east, but when coming from Melbourne I drive to the roundabout at Oaklands, turn there and then access the rough area via the shoulder on the Melbourne-bound lane.

I'd like to make a mention of the runway area just past the airport heading out of Melbourne. My friend and I were traveling back to Sunbury and were nearly involved in a major accident. What most people don't realize is that Bulla Road has a double white line, disallowing overtaking as the two lanes merge into one. This double line continues all the way to the Oaklands Road roundabout, but some people still insist on taking a very dangerous right turn down the embankment to this aircraft viewing area. The area is considered as one of Melbourne's worst accident blind spots and there were barriers placed there to prevent people from stopping and making that turn. This didn't help and people are still driving a little past the barrier and making the dangerous maneuver. Either the aircraft viewing spot should be closed off or barriers laid all the way to Oaklands Road and a service track leading along the other side of the barrier to the viewing spot should be made available.
