Port Phillip Ferries

2A Harding St Portarlington


Marching into autumn, Port Phillip Ferries are excited by the tonne of events going on around Melbourne and Geelong / Bellarine.

Melbourne is bursting with events like the Grand Prix, Melbourne Food & Wine Festival, Melbourne Comedy Festival and heaps more. Apart from the festivals, the Docklands precinct is full of fun adventures for all ages with the likes of ArtVo, Archie Brothers, Urban Alley Brewery and the classic Melbourne Star. On the Bellarine the long weekend is poised to host the Bellarine Agricultural show, plus the ferries own 1-hour Mussel, Wine and bay Cruise. Head to their website for more details.

Summer was an absolute ball with more and more passengers coming on board to explore the journey across the waters. The service provided a fabulous outing for day trippers and regular commuters, and they are already seeing heaps of seniors’ groups taking advantage of the mid-week services.

The packages and experiences have been incredibly popular with opportunities for people to book a complete package to enjoy one of the many great venues on the Bellarine. Melbourne visitors and residents have been cruising across to have lunch at wineries like Terindah Estate, Basils Farm and other delicious places like the incredible Q Train and The Whiskery.

Head in the other direction, and cruise to Melbourne for a big city adventure. They’ve also got some great offers with Sebel Docklands and Peppers Docklands, if you want to crash the night in the big smoke. Otherwise, get off at Docklands, hop on a tram and head straight for the city centre for all the top eateries... and bars too. As you step off the ferry you can get straight onto the free CBD tram network. No Myki card needed.

With a smashing start to 2019, they are most looking forward to commencing services to Geelong later in 2019. This will involve two return services, directly between Geelong and Docklands, 365 days of the year. Keep watching them for news on commencement of these services.

Cruising 365 days of the year, Port Phillip Ferries offers the most relaxing and unique journey. Enjoy the licensed onboard café for snacks, coffee and local wines. Also byo your bike and use one of the free bike racks (but book on line, as they sell out fast).

So, for your next dose of Vitamin Sea, there’s only one way…. Port Phillip Ferries. Make sure you take heaps of selfies along the way and get ready to #setthecruisecontrol
