By taking part in the lottery, punters have a chance to win one of 21 return ferry tickets each week for only $20.
Following a successful launch last year and with the winter weather well and truly taking hold, Searoad Ferries has brought back its $20 ferry lottery campaign for the cooler months.
Kicking off last Friday (7 July), the winter campaign will run for eight weeks and provide the public with a chance to win hundreds of cheap ferry tickets.

By taking part in the lottery, punters have a chance to win one of 21 return ferry tickets each week for only $20. Each ticket, usually valued at $183, provides a driver, passenger and vehicle return travel across the Bay between Queenscliff and Sorrento.
Inspired by Melbourne’s popular theatre lottery, Searoad Ferries CEO Matt McDonald said the campaign was a huge success last year and the company is once again running the lottery program to treat keen travellers.

So how the ferry lottery work?
Simply enter the Ferry Lottery every week and you could be in with the chance to win. Every Friday for eight weeks starting 7 July the lottery draw opens. So we’ve missed that one, which means your next chance will be on Friday 14 July (add this to your calendar!).
On the Friday, choose a preferred travel day/s and winners will be selected at random the following Thursday. Winners must contact the Searoad Ferries customer service team to redeem and pay for their $20 ferry ticket.
“If you share your entry via Facebook, you will further increase your chances of winning, says Mr McDonald.
Operating for over 30 years, Searoad Ferries is the iconic car and passenger ferry service sailing Melbourne’s Port Phillip Bay between Sorrento and Queenscliff. Two vessels, MV Sorrento and MV Queenscliff, connect the Great Ocean Road and the Bellarine with the Mornington Peninsula, sailing the pristine waters 24 times a day, 365 days a year.
With spacious lounges encircled by full-length windows and external observation decks (plus a brand new terminal in Queenscliff worth the visit alone), passengers can view the spectacular coastal scenery, admire the cliff top mansions and spot dolphins all year round. Once passengers disembark, they can discover the landscapes, food, wine and seaside towns of these two regions.
