Access by rail 


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.

If travelling by train or public transport  bus you will need a Myki travel ticket. These can be purchased at your point of arrival in Victoria and topped up if needed during your stay. 

Access by road


In under an hour, you can drive from the city of Melbourne to Geelong via the Princes Freeway or from Melbourne Airport via connections from the Western Ring Road and Tullamarine Freeway. The new Geelong Ring Road gives you faster than ever access (just over an hour) to Torquay and the Great Ocean Road and beyond. All major car rental companies are represented at Avalon Airport and within the Geelong and Great Ocean Road region. The Melbourne Airport Sky Bus travels to the Docklands stop to Southern Cross Station and from there, you can travel by rail or by sea.

  Access by sea


If you’re travelling from the east Victorian coast there is simply no better means of travel than aboard the Queenscliff- Sorrento Ferry. Ferries run on the hour, every hour, every day of the year. Another exciting way to get to Geelong from Melbourne by sea is via a cruise on Port Philip Ferries. The Docklands Ferry Terminal is opposite the Melbourne Airport Skybus Docklands bus stop if you need to transfer to the ferry from the airport.
