Footy Ferries 2024

Forget the hassles of driving and parking, travel to and from the footy this year in style

Footy Ferries 2024

Calling all footy supporters in Geelong and the Bellarine. This year we are changing things up with our new 2 Way, Same Day Footy Packages. When you book a Footy Ferry Special you get a 2 way package to the footy and home again.

Also this year’s ⭐️ Footy Ferry Specials will be running out of Portarlington which has a lot more parking available, and the timetable caters for more games to a wider range of supporters. Plus the new timetable gives you more time to get to the ground before and after games.

Game Day Packs

2 Way, Same Day Footy Package

This year we are introducing a range of discounted Game Day Packs that will give you exclusive access to the ⭐️ Footy Ferry Specials that we’ll be running throughout the 2024 AFL season.

Each Game Day Pass consists of a return trip from Portarlington and back on the same day. Available for purchase in 3 and 5 game bundles, you’ll have the choice to purchase adult packs or a range of different family packs. Either way you will be paying a lot less per trip with these packs than purchasing tickets separately.

Pre-game Activities
