+
Driving from Melbourne's CBD to Geelong takes about an hour. Be aware that the route has a significant number of fixed speed cameras.
+
 
+
=== VLine train restrictions ===
+
 
+
This is mainly for those travelling from Melbourne to the conference by VLine...
+
 
+
If you are based in Melbourne or Victoria in general, you may have heard that V/Line's VLocity  trains have been "restricted" from the Melbourne metro rail network.
+
 
+
Some trains are now running right into Southern Cross (aka Spencer Street) which is the Melbourne terminus for most of VLine's Melbourne train services.
+
 
+
As a delegate, how may this affect you?
+
* Those trains that are not running in and out of Melbourne will be replaced by coaches, at least for the Melbourne network section.
+
* If you are wanting to be in Geelong by a particular time, please allow an extra hour for your travel time.
+
* Check VLine's web site at https://www.vline.com.au/ for service updates and replacements.
