French Island is located quite close to Melbourne Victoria, but in many ways seems far removed from the bustling capital of Victoria. French Island is twice the size of Phillip Island, with two-thirds being National Park. It is just 65 kilometres from Melbourne, yet many Victorians who know very little if anything about the Western Port island that is French Island. To get to French Island you have to catch the Inter-Island Ferry which runs a service to and from the island daily from Stony Point on the Mornington Peninsula and also from Cowes Jetty on certain days. For information on the ferry schedules phone (03) 9585 5730. Push bikes are permitted on the ferry and as there is no transport or other vehicles on French Island.
