TRANSPORT  to & from GEELONG

From the Airport….(Remember, the end goal is Geelong, 1 hour away from Melbourne!)

Options From Melbourne Tullamarine Airport –> Geelong

  • If you are going straight from Melbourne Airport to Geelong, catch the Gull bus, about $38 one way. If you choose this option, then please retain proof of payment for your bus ticket so that you can be partially reimbursed upon arriving at the conference.
  • There are two stops for the Gull bus in Geelong, however it is best to get off at Geelong main railway station as it is closer to our Waterfront Campus.image007image005

Options From Melbourne Tullamarine Airport –> Melbourne –> Geelong

  • If need to go into Melbourne City before you come to Geelong, catch the Skybus to Southern Cross Railway Station, they go every 20 minutes (buy tickets there: $19 one way, $38 two ways).
  • Catch the Vline train to the Geelong train station (it takes about 1 hour), which will be $6.10 for Concession and $12.20 for Adult (plus the Myki card, about $3 for locals and $6 for internationals)
  • The walk is 6 minutes away, however if you are too tired, the Route 1 bus is one stop away from the station. Make sure you are catching the one going to Deakin University and not North Shore.
