Sail, Rail & Dine

from Sorrento with The Q Train and Searoad Ferries!

Depart Sorrento and experience a day on the Bellarine that you’ll never forget.

For guests from the Eastern Suburbs and Mornington Peninsula, Searoad Ferries offer a luxurious way to travel to the Bellarine. With Searoad’s frequent departures, there is always a service that aligns with The Q Train’s lunch services.

Sail from Sorrento to Queenscliff on board the ferry, arrive in the new Queenscliff Terminal, and be transported by Explore Australia to The Q Train in Drysdale.

After lunch, you’ll be transported back to the ferry by Explore Australia for the return journey. Sometimes there is some downtime between the end of The Q Train and the ferry departure, during which time you can enjoy the brand new Queenscliff Harbour.

Searoad Ferries usually departs every hour.

We recommend you arrive to the ferry terminal 20 minutes prior to their departure time – boarding can be very busy!
