Getting to Keysborough
To get there by public transport, take a train to Moorabbin (or another southern stop nearby on the Frankston Line), and a bus to Keysborough from there (most go to Parkmore). This takes at least an hour and a half, so if you are coming from near the city it is best to drive as it only takes 30-40 minutes.
