Millionaire Hot Seat Day on the Bay 

Self-guided tour with FREE Hot Seat Tickets

Live in Geelong or on the Bellarine Peninsula and looking for something fun and different to do during the week?

Catch the ferry from Geelong or Portarlington and head across to Melbourne to join the audience of a live studio recording of Millionaire Hot Seat with host Eddie McGuire! Both ferries arrive at Docklands in the morning, and the studio recording doesn’t start until midday, so there’s plenty of time for brunch or even a little bit of retail therapy before the show.

Millionaire Hot Seat tickets are free and all audience members are entered into a draw to win Cash Prizes.

Since it premiered on April 20, 2009, Millionaire Hot Seat has become Australia’s longest-running quiz show – and remains the only program on Australian television where it is possible to win $1 million.
