Searoad Ferries provides a car and passenger ferry service linking the Bellarine and Mornington Peninsulas with trips every hour on the hour from 7am to 6pm daily. Early bird rates apply for caravans on the 7am, 8am and 9am services.

Both destinations have a vast number of attractions to explore. Then, from Sorrento on the Mornington Peninsula, it's a leisurely 2-hour scenic drive to Phillip Island and the famous Penguin Parade. From Queenscliff on the Bellarine Peninsula, you're very close to the glorious Great Ocean Road.

Stroll on board as a passenger or bring your car - it's the fast and environmentally friendly alternative to the drive of more than 200 km through the city from one peninsula to the other.

Two specially designed all-weather 60-metre ferries depart from both destinations on the hour, every hour, 7am to 6pm daily. Enjoy easy drive on/drive off facilities, spacious comfortable lounges with full-length windows, a tempting cafe and plenty of deck space.

There are ever-changing sights - watch out for dolphins, whales in winter and enormous ships as you breathe incredibly fresh air. Arriving at Sorrento, you'll have a perfect view of multi-million dollar mansions sitting atop cliffs, tiny coves filled with boats, the beautiful foreshore and old limestone buildings.  

Queenscliff is dominated by the fascinating 1860s Fort Queenscliff, but has many gracious old buildings including grand historic hotels and guesthouses. The specially designed all weather ferries have easy drive on/drive off facilities, no turning required. For further information please visit the Searoad Ferry website
