Touring & Transport Sorrento


Queenscliff Sorrento car and passenger ferry service, linking the Mornington Peninsula and Phillip Island to the Bellarine Peninsula and Great Ocean Road. The 40 minute crossing is a stress free alternative to driving through the city, saving time and kilometres.


Travel as a foot passenger and explore the villages of Queenscliff and Sorrento or take the car and travel further afield.

There is much to do on the voyage. Explore the ferry and choose your favourite vantage point, whether it be from inside in the comfort of the lounges or cafe style seating with full length windows, or from one of the outside decks.

Sip on a coffee, enjoy a fresh made focaccia or slurp on an ice cream from the onboard kiosk. See the spectacular coastline, mighty ships as they leave and enter the Bay, or maybe a dolphin or two.

There are two vessels, the MV Sorrento and the MV Queenscliff, each holding up to 700 passengers and 80 vehicles. The MV Sorrento has disabled facilities with a lift from the vehicle deck to the passenger lounge. Please call to confirm sailing times.
