Bike & Walking Trails

Melbourne, Geelong, and the Bellarine Peninsula have some of the most amazing bike and walking trails in the country, and we think they are worth showcasing. So we have compiled some of our favourite options below for each destination.

With the capacity to carry up to 20 bikes onboard each vessel, integrating the ferry into your walking or cycle adventure is made easy. The bike racks are free with your ferry ticket but you’ll need to book in advance to avoid disappointment. When selecting passenger type in your online booking you are also able to choose how many bikes you are traveling with. Please also allow extra boarding time to load and secure bikes.
