Searoad's oldest much-loved vessel, the MV Queenscliff, has undergone a multi-million dollar facelift and will travel for the first time to Melbourne for her unveiling at Waterfront City, Docklands in September.
The ferry service connects Queenscliff (Great Ocean Road) and Sorrento (Mornington Peninsula). The MV Queenscliff will dock at the berth opposite Etihad Stadium for the 'open weekend' of 24-25 September.
The public will be invited to board and view a special floating exhibition showcasing experiences on offer at the Mornington and Bellarine Peninsula.
The refurbished interior features a new lounge with full 360-degree views, a dedicated children's playground, an onboard café helmed by local chef Ken Wall, an interactive travel showcase and free wifi to keep passengers connected on board.
As part of the company's new direction, Searoad Ferries is also launching several new initiatives, including "High Tea on the High Seas".
The new 'High Teas on the High Seas' package, served onboard in the ship's Portsea Lounge, will be available on the last Sunday of September, October and November this spring.
A delectable afternoon high tea spread includes tasty finger sandwiches, cakes and desserts, espresso coffee, freshly brewed tea or sparkling wine.
High Tea on the High Seas runs as a return trip from Sorrento at 11am, 1pm and 3pm and costs $35 per person. For bookings and more information on exciting initiatives just launched with the rebranding, visit the Searoad's website.
