How to get to Peninsula Hot Springs from Melbourne?
While the Peninsula Hot Springs may seem like a world away from the hustle and bustle of Melbourne, it’s only an easy 90 minute drive. For those travelling by car, you can follow the coastline via Frankston for a scenic journey or take the M1 and join the Eastlink tollway for a speedier trip. Unfortunately public transport options are limited. If travelling to the Peninsula Hot Springs from Melbourne, board a Frankston line train to Frankston then take the no. 788 bus to Rye. From here you can call a taxi or Uber. For the most scenic option of all, choose to catch the ferry from Sorrento Pier or Queenscliff Harbour, departing every hour on the hour from 7am until 6pm, all year round. Another alternative is organising your own private transfer.
