Funding support for new ferry

03 Sep 2019

The City of Greater Geelong has supported Port Phillip Ferries in taking its next step towards launching a new commuter ferry service between Docklands and Geelong.

Geelong councillors approved a $90,000 plan at its August 13 meeting for installing new mooring piles at Steampacket Place along the city’s waterfront, allowing the Port Phillip Ferries’ Geelong Flyer to be able to berth there.

Port Phillip Ferries CEO Murray Rance told Docklands News that the “strong support” from the Geelong Council meant the service was well on track for its scheduled launch on December 2.

Mr Rance said that it would initially offer four services between Geelong and Docklands each day. The journey between Victoria’s two biggest cities will take a little more than 90 minutes, with a return trip costing $36.
