The Point Nepean Shuttle is a hop-on hop-off shuttle service transporting visitors between the Quarantine Station and Fort Nepean. Visitors can hop on and off at the designated stops along the way, or stay on until the end and return back to the stop they boarded from. It currently operates from a single 55 seater bus and can accommodate standard wheelchair access. The bus cannot accommodate motorised / scooter style or the Parks Victoria all-terrain wheelchairs due to access limitations.

Note that the service does not regularly stop at the park entrance. The Shuttle Bus connects with the Portsea public bus (788) stop at the front entrance gate at three designated times – see timetable below.

This service is operated by Ventura Buslines, an umbrella company of Portsea Passenger Service and Grenda. Tickets are available for purchase from the driver at the designated stops. Most credit cards and cash accepted. Tickets are valid for the day of purchase only.

Shuttle service timetable

The shuttle bus operates every day of the year (including public holidays) except Christmas Day.
