Take a trip around Port Phillip Bay. Enjoy views of Melbourne and Port Phillip Bay from the West Gate Bridge. The height above the water is 58 metres and the bridge’s total length is 2,582.6 metres. It is the third-longest in Australia and is twice as long as Sydney’s Harbour Bridge.
We shall visit The State Rose Garden at Werribee for a toilet stop and morning tea break, and a visit to view Werribee South vegetable garden and see Wyndham Harbour Marina as we drive by thru Werribee to get back onto the Freeway to Geelong.
We will then head to Gateway Hotel Corio for Buffet Lunch at Noon. After lunch, we shall drive you to the picturesque waterfront of Geelong overlooking the Bay.
We head down the Bellarine Peninsula (Westside of Port Phillip Bay) to the lovely seaside village of Queenscliff, which is bursting with reminders of its past as we drive through the streets to view imposing Victorian-era hotels dripping with intricate iron lacework, charming old churches – some enjoying new life as galleries – and quaint fishers’ cottages. You will also find the most miniature house on the main street of Queenscliff Please look out for house number 60.
We catch the ferry across the narrow entrance to Port Phillip Bay, known as “The Rip”, to Sorrento. The trip across the Bay at this point takes 40 minutes. You can enjoy the incredible ocean views from comfortable passenger lounges. Refreshments are available onboard (own expense)
Another seaside village, Sorrento is one of the most popular and well-known holiday escapes on the Mornington Peninsula (East side of Port Phillip Bay). Soon after we reach Sorrento, we shall be heading back to Melbourne.
