Transportation

Getting to Apollo Bay


Apollo Bay is approximately 3 hours drive from Melbourne and 2 hours drive from Geelong (via the inland route).  Public transport options are available but convoluted and slow.

Unless you need to go into Geelong for supplies, it is advisable to take the ring road around Geelong to save time. The southern terminus of the ring road is where you need to decide whether you are going to take the scenic and slower coastal route (head to Anglesea) or the quicker, inland route (continue towards Colac but turn off just past Winchelsea and follow signs to Apollo Bay).

Interstate Runner Transport

For interstate travellers, Avalon Airport is the closest Airport (near Geelong) but Tullamarine Airport in Melbourne (Melbourne's main airport) can also be easily used.  While Avalon Airport is much smaller and limited in services, it does offer hire cars through the major companies but pre-booking is required.  

Finish Transport

There won't be any formal transport from the finish into Port Campbell. We will rely on ride sharing with other crews and endeavour to get all runners into Port Campbell as quickly as possible while saving money and resources by not using a bus.

Port Campbell to Apollo Bay Sunday morning

The will be a bus from the Port Campbell Hostel back to Apollo Bay on the Sunday after the presentation for $35 (price to be confirmed).
This can be booked and paid for during online registration.
