Is there any reliable camera I can buy to put down a long driveway (30m)? 

 

Ideally AA battery powered, waterproof, and has a decent wifi range say 100m/300'.

If you hadn't mentioned WiFi there are a few options out there for portable cameras. If you want WiFi connectivity the simple answer is nothing good - you'll have to take it down and charge it every day.

There are a lot of battery powered portable cameras out there. I've never used any so don't have any recommendations.

 

Most of these are still low spec compared to modern IP cameras. Cabling a camera would always be the best option.
