Free Grand Prix Ferry

Available from Geelong and Portarlington

Port Phillip Ferries are excited to offer a free ferry to the Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix for all those who have been lucky enough to secure tickets to this spectacular event.

We want to make it as easy as possible for Geelong and Bellarine residents to get to the event stress-free so we are excited to offer everyone who has a valid 2023 Grand Prix ticket, a FREE* one-way ferry trip to Melbourne from Geelong or Portarlington.

Start your Grand Prix adventure in style! With a licenced cafe on board, you can start your day with a fresh barista-made coffee and a breakfast snack, and if you choose to return on the ferry you can enjoy a nice cold beer or wine on your way home. It’s just easier than the hassles of driving down the freeway and finding a park.
