Transport options

Airport bus

Transport from Melbourne's Tullamarine Airport has never been so easy with the SkyBus running a fast, frequent and affordable airport transfer seven days a week.

With stops in Mornington Peninsula, Rosebud and Dromana it's simple to alight from each of the three stops and take a scenic drive in a taxi or Uber to RACV Cape Schanck Resort. 


Take the Frankston train line to Frankston from the Melbourne CBD. From Frankston embark the 788 Portsea bus to Adams Avenue, Rosebud. We would then recommend opting for comfort by taking a taxi or booking an Uber from the bus stop to the resort.

Searoad Ferries

Searoad Ferries, Australia's favourite car and passenger ferry, connects the Mornington and Bellarine Peninsulas and is a great alternative to the drive through the city, on toll roads and through city traffic. Two all weather ferries depart on the hour, every hour between 7am - 6pm from Sorrento Pier and Queenscliff Harbour.

See dolphins, spectacular coastline and big ships as you breathe incredibly fresh air. Enjoy comfortable lounges, onboard café, wi-fi and a children's play area.
