Getting Here

Predominantly, the easiest way to get to the Peninsula is by road as public transport is limited to a bus service. The methods of transport below are available to access various regions across the Peninsula.

  • Road: It’s easiest to reach the Peninsula via Peninsula Link that joins from Eastlink at Carrum Downs. Coming from Melbourne by road you have many options via Nepean Highway as well as via the Frankston Freeway onto Moorooduc highway. Another option is available via the Monash Freeway (M1) and the Western Port Highway to the eastern side of the Peninsula.
  • Bus: Public transport is limited along the Southern Peninsula, however, a bus service runs along the entire length of the peninsula down to Portsea departing from Frankston Railway Station. A number of bus services run partway down the peninsula from Frankston Station along the Nepean Highway.
  • Train: Trains run a rail service from Frankston to Hastings and Stony Point, but unfortunately are not available to the Port Phillip side of the Peninsula. A bus service also runs to Flinders on the south coast.
  • Ferry: The Searoad Ferry Service operates two vehicle and passenger ferries on an hourly service between the Mornington and Bellarine Peninsulas, departing from Queenscliff from the Bellarine Peninsula and arriving at Sorrento on the Mornington Peninsula.
