That’s half the price and double the adventure for fun-seeking seniors.

Save 50% and travel for just $7 each way


All Aboard!

Cruise in absolute style on our state-of-the-art vessel. The Bellarine Express boasts 400 seats and all the creature comforts; friendly staff, free Wi-Fi, charging stations, tables, and drop-down trays – not to mention an on-board licensed café where you can enjoy snacks and a quality coffee (or wine).


Oh, The Places You’ll Go

 Docklands or Portarlington – either side of the bay is full of hidden surprises just waiting to be discovered, and the best way to experience them is by crossing the bay onboard Port Phillip Ferries. A scenic trip with us allows you to make the most of a day out (or an overnight stay). Every minute of the journey as much a part of your adventure as the destination itself.


Docklands to Portarlington

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are ideal for exploring the Bellarine. The timing of the Ferry schedule allows for ample time in the beautiful region, and a nice afternoon cruise back to the city once you’re done exploring all that the area has to offer. Wineries, restaurants, café’s, shopping, and golf clubs – the region caters to everyone.

Portarlington to Docklands

For the bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, we make the trek to Docklands every morning at 7am. There’s also an 11:15am service on Tuesday and Wednesday if you’re more partial to a sleep-in. With the ferry docking extremely close to the free CBD tram network and being only a short walk away from Southern Cross Station, exploring all that the city has to offer has never been so easy. The hard part is choosing what to do.
