Travelling by Train

For information on V/line services that run to the Geelong and Warrnambool Campuses please visit Intercampus Travel


The Melbourne Burwood Campus

The Melbourne Burwood Campus sits between the Lilydale/Belgrave, Glen Waverley and Alamein train lines.

  • If you're traveling on the Lilydale/Belgrave line, hop off at Box Hill Railway Station and take the 732, 767, 281 or 768 bus to the Melbourne Burwood Campus.
  • If you're traveling on the Glen Waverley line, hop off at Jordanville Station and take the 767 bus to the Melbourne Burwood Campus.
  • If you're traveling on the Alamein line, hop off at either Hartwell or Burwood Station and take the 75 tram to the Melbourne Burwood Campus.

It's easy to get to Deakin if you live near a train line so why not give it a go?

Train and bike

If you live near a train line, why not ride to the nearest station (or push yourself by riding to one further away), catch the train to either Box Hill or Jordanville Station and then ride along the Gardiner’s Creek Trail to campus. Bicycles on trains are free and it will save you time waiting for connecting buses.

Bike riders are asked to use the last door of the last carriage where possible, and strongly advised to avoid the front of the train, where wheelchair users board.

So take your bike out of storage and ride to Deakin - you'll feel better for it!

Intercampus travel

If you regularly commute between campuses there are a few options for you.

  1. Take the V/Line train. Melbourne, Geelong and Warrnambool have regular services during the day. Follow the link to V/line for information on timetables and fares.
  2. If you are travelling to the Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus, you can hop off at Geelong Station and take a short 5 minute walk to catch the intercampus bus provided by Deakin.
  3. Have you considered taking your bike on the train? You can then commute to the Melbourne Burwood, Geelong Waurn Ponds or Warrnambool Campus by bike? Visit the cycling page for more information and start bike riding today!
