With school holidays around the corner, parents are on the hunt for activities to keep the kids busy.
Port Phillip Ferries is offering the chance to cruise between Portarlington and Melbourne easily and affordably, with children’s ticket prices halved for journeys between Monday and Friday this school holiday period.
Heading to Portarlington?
The pretty town of Portarlington is the perfect place to take in some fresh air and coastal scenery. Take a scenic walk along the foreshore, eat fish and chips by the water or stay the night for more adventure.
Bring your fishing rod, try a bit of snorkelling and buy a box of mussels to take.
Heading to Melbourne?
If you’re looking for some giggles, check out the Melbourne International Comedy Festival to catch any number of great comedy shows for kids.
For some educational fun, head to Melbourne Aquarium for an array of activities including a glass bottom boat ride. Just a quick and free tram ride from where the ferry docks, hop over to Harbour Town to bounce on the jumping castle, have a crack at the life-size games, or immerse yourself in the Nerf obstacle course.
But there’s no need to wait for the fun to begin onshore, begin enjoying yourself on the journey across the bay with three return services offered each day. Along with stunning views, comfy seats and free Wi-Fi at your disposal.
