Ferry back with weekend services


SEAROAD Ferries has resumed its weekend service between Sorrento and Queenscliff following last week’s lifting of restrictions in regional Victoria.

CEO Matt McDonald said the lifting of restrictions would allow the “‘recovery” to begin and hoped to see the Mornington Peninsula and metropolitan Melbourne soon “move in line with regional Victoria”.

The changes allow people from regional Victoria to use the ferry service to drive from Geelong to Phillip Island.

“During stage three and stage four we have continued to move our customers who, ultimately, rely on the service,” Mr McDonald said.

Permitted travel has included food supplies, emergency services, essential workers and medical staff, along with individual carers travelling for compassionate reasons.

The service will operate an interim, two-hourly timetable departing Queenscliff at 8am, 10am, 12pm, 2pm and 4pm and from Sorrento at 9am, 11am, 1pm, 3pm and 5pm.
