Jump on the train, get on your bike, drive over the bridge or take a relaxing ferry ride from Southbank in Melbourne’s CBD and you’ll soon find yourself in Hobsons Bay. If you’re looking for an idyllic way to spend a day, you’ve come to the right place. With water all around — both Port Phillip Bay and the Yarra River are right on the doorstep and a number of suburbs with a village vibe, you’ll soon forget the bustle of daily life.
The Punt will take cyclists across the river from Port Melbourne (Fishermans Bend) to Spotswood, just behind Scienceworks. Commuter service operates Monday to Friday 6.30am to 9.30am and 4pm to 7pm. Weekend service operates 10am to 5pm. www.westgatepunt.com
