    Sail away from Melbourne to experience a unique 6 course degustation dining experience on board The Q Train! Get ready to board one of Port Phillip Ferries vessels at Docklands and begin your cruise to the beautiful Bellarine. You'll travel in comfort and enjoy the beautiful coastal scenery – and be sure to keep your eyes peeled for a glimpse of the dolphins! The journey to Portarlington takes about 75 minutes and once you've arrived, a tour representative will meet you for a transfer to Drysdale Station where The Q Train departs. Enjoy a glass of wine at the Platform Bar, before the maitred' asks you to board one of The Q Train's restored dining carriages. Soon it’ll be time to travel in style on The Q Train along heritage railway line to the picturesque seaside town of Queenscliff. A six-course seasonal degustation menu, featuring the finest local Bellarine produce and wine, beer and cider from the region, will be served! A vegetarian menu is also available. Peer out of the window between courses to see views of Swan Bay and the surrounding landscape or wander up to the Club Loco Bar Car to chat to other travelers and soak up the train's rich history. By afternoon you'll return to Drysdale for transfers back to the ferry to Docklands. When you finally arrive at Docklands, enjoy the evening in Melbourne and roam around as you please!
