The VTG team strongly recommend travelling via public transport to Geelong.
Regular rail services operate between Melbourne's Southern Cross Station and Geelong, and buses connect central Geelong with the suburbs and villages of The Bellarine.
Check out timetables at Public Transport Victoria.
Geelong is only an hour from the Melbourne CBD via the Westgate and Princes Freeways, and Bellarine destinations are within half an hour of Geelong. It's a compact region, easy to explore by car.
Australia's favourite car and passenger ferry connects Queenscliff and The Bellarine with the Mornington Peninsula, Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, and Phillip Island. The lounge and external decks all offer spectacular coastal views as passengers relax and enjoy a coffee and the scenery. The 40 minute crossing departs every hour, every day between 7am - 6pm.
