How to Reach

By plane

Warrnambool has an airport located approximately 15km north of the CBD. There are no scheduled commercial flights.

By train

V/Line operates three daily train services from Melbourne to Warrnambool. The journey (of just over 3 hours) operates via Geelong, and trains have a buffet car on board serving snacks. Generally, you have to ring V/Line to make a reservation, or go to a station and do so, especially if you are travelling from Southern Cross Station in Melbourne, however, there are conductors on board who sell tickets.

By car

From Melbourne, Warrnambool can be reached on the Princes Highway and it takes approximately 3.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take the Great Ocean Road. This takes approximately 6.5 hours (without stopping), but is well worth it for the spectacular views.

By bus

V/Line runs a coach along the Great Ocean Road to Warrnambool three times a week, and daily bus services to Hamilton and Mount Gambier in South Australia.
