How do I get to Mornington Peninsula from Geelong if i am driving?

by benboh

Hi! I am thinking of renting a car from Melbourne Avalon airport and I will be driving to Geelong. After Geelong, we would like to visit Mornington but we are not sure how to get there. I have done some research and most sites suggest that I drive down to Queenscliff and take the ferry to Mornington Peninsula. Is that the way to go? And how long would that roughly take? Thanks in advance to anyone who responds!

Hi there,

Check out www.searoad.com.au they have all the information you will need to take the ferry from Queenscliff. Factors depend on the type of vehicle, how many in the car etc. Since you are arriving in Avalon it would seem it bit pointless to drive to melbourne and go all the way around.

This would be the way to go, trip on the ferry takes around 45 mins. From Sorrento I would look at Portsea, Sorrento and then go inland for a bit and look at the view og the bay from Arthurs seat. You can easily head back into the peninsula or head up to Flinders visiting some of the wineries as you go.

Had a quick look at the searoad link and a standard car with 2 people costs $63 each way, or $69 each way for peak season and that seems quite expensive. You may like to consider doing one way by ferry and then return via roads - allow AT LEAST 2.5 hours and that's off peak. Ferry goes into Sorrento and that's about 20 - 30 minutes drive to Mornington.

Travel Tips for Geelong

Skandia Geelong Week

by ATXtraveler

If you are going to be in Melbourne or Victoria as a whole during the last week in January (Australia Day weekend), then you should definitely consider making your way down to Geelong, where you will get the chance to watch some yachting, have a brew or two, and do some shopping as you cruise the waterfront looking for all the beautiful people.

The Royal Geelong Yacht Club has hosted 142 of these festivals and regattas, so rest assured you will have a great time!

Even on the opening website, this is listed as "A must do" event!! With that kind of necessity, you have to be here, otherwise you might start thinking you were square!

by mr.ED.

A visit to the waterfront is a must.There are many things to see and some exellent cafes and resturants overlooking the bay.The National Wool Museum is world class and gives a real feel for living and working in rural and outback Ausstrlia. Football...The home of the Geelong 'Cats',and an evening walk along the foreshore.

Geelong Waterfront II

by Kate-Me

This seems to be a new kind of amusement in Geelong (I hadn't seen it before). Kind of a bit like a 'right way up' bungee.
Participants jump on a trampoline -they're strapped into a harness which has elastic 'cords' enabling them to jump extremely high and perform all kinds of somersaults, backward manoevers and such.
Looks like fun, and it's not just for kids (though the weight limit is 100 kgs)

Right nearby, again right on the waterfront, is a children's carousel ride inside a glassed in structure.

A long and Boring Drive

by keeweechic

The times I travelled to Geelong from Melbourne was usually on business and not so much for sightseeing. The distance from Melbourne is around 72km and I always found the main highway to be long and straight and therefore boring to drive. You had to be really careful at night or if you were tired to keep your concentration, otherwise you could find yourself drifting off.

Geelong - Hot Rod Shows

by cassiejoy42

If you like checking out the older cars made in the 1920s - 1970s you can go to the All Ford Day - it is held once a year. Usually it is held at the Geelong Showgrounds.
Some of the car clubs and rock n roll clubs also hold "Show N Shine" days where people from all over Australia congregate. People who own the cars get to show them off and people who go for a look get to drool all over the cars.
I am an absolute car nut and love all the older style cars. I own a dilapidated EH Holden which needs a lot of work done on it - it is my restoration project.
The photos that I have included were all taken at an All Ford Day so I assume they are all Fords - if any car nuts out there want to send me an email and let me know what sort of car they are I will happily change the picture captions.
