    Anzac Memorial

    by Sweetberry1 Updated Aug 29, 2003

    Memorial

    It was Anzac Day when we were here, and there were lots of flowers and wreathes placed around the monument, by loved ones.
    There would have been an early morning gathering of family, friends, and others in the forces. A day of Rememberance.

    Continental Hotel

    Hotel

    The Continental Hotel is apparently one of the biggest hotels in Sorrento. This photo was taken downhill from it, so not all of the hotel is seen.
    Judging by the prices in Sorrento, I would imagine it to be quite expensive to stay there.

    Parks and Gardens on the foreshore..

    by Sweetberry1 Updated Aug 29, 2003

    Rotunda on the foreshore..

    The parks and gardens on the foreshore are shaded by beautiful old trees, a great place for a picnic by the beach..
    There are also rotundas, and lots of picnic tables... if a 'Blanket on the Ground' isn't your thing.. ;-)
    This place can be wonderful for a family outing, or a lovely setting for couples to relax.

    Siteseeing.. around town..

    View of Town...

    Sorrento is a pretty resort town, and lots to see while walking around the main streets.
    The main shopping/business center is only a couple of hundred meters from the beach.
    I always enjoy walking through these places, as you see so much more that way.
    And you also get a chance to grab the odd souvenir..

    Diving and swimming with Dolphins..

    by Sweetberry1 Updated Aug 29, 2003

    Tour boat..

    Although diving is something I have never done, no trip to Sorrento would be complete without going out on a diving tour.
    Boats from Sorrento carry passengers and divers who want to swim with the dolphins. They can always be found off their feeding and breeding grounds near Portsea.

    This is definitely something I will be doing next time I visit Sorrento.

    Seals..

    Another regular on these waters.. Seals.. lazing on anything that sits above the water.
    I managed to get a fantastic shot of a seal swimming past the ferry. He was laying on his side, on top of the water, and one flipper was raised.. waving.. lol..

    Jetski Riders..

    As we were leaving Sorrento, we were given a real big send off by the 'Jet Ski Cowboys'.. The Ferry was surrounded by them...
    You couldn't half tell that they were just showing off their waterskills.

    Flag

    Flag...

    I don't often see this particular flag, mostly we just see the blue version of the same..I guess this would have to be a Marine flag, displayed on sea going craft.
    Very striking color though.

    Sunset over Port Phillip Bay

    Well... not quite setting yet, but close enough to try for a photo.. The sun setting slowly on the horizon was a magical site.

    What a lovely ending for a perfect day,
    Peacefully sailing across Port Phillip Bay.

    Sorrento Pier..

    Sorrento Pier..

    The Sorrento foreshore and beach area are lovely, and absolutely scream for a long walk on the sand.. taking in the sites, taking a few shots with the cam, or perhaps a dip in the beautiful clear waters.

    Sand Sculptures @ Rye Beach

    I am not sure wether this beach comes under Sorrento or not. Found this beautiful beach on the way to Melbourne, but every near to Sorrento. This beach is so blue and its swallow for some meters…so safe to swim (I guess so...but we didn’t get in). Lot of tourist in this beach. On the beach we come across ‘Sand Sculptures’ show…wow!! Hope its been conducted by Australian Sand Sculture Society, and they were teaching the kids about sand sculptures. This is one of the best sand sculptures a come across. Look at the picture.

    Sorrento-Portsea Artists' Trail

    by leffe3 Written May 30, 2012
    4 more images

    An easy coastal walk between the two settlements, the trail was established in 2004.

    Whilst not overly dramatic, the area has long inspired many of the key Australian artists of the past 150 years and the project involved matching the land and seascape works with the actual locations. So dotted along the walk are stands with copies of works by such luminaries as Sidney Nolan, JOhn Perceval, Albert Tucker and Sir Arthur Streeton.

    Walkway will take you along the edges of private coastal gardens, along small, isolated beaches and, with the trail split into two, through the laneways of Portsea and Sorrento and past the seriously wealthy homes!

    Beach..

    This is the view from where the shopping area begins. It was a strenous uphill walk, but the view was beautiful from up here.

    Beach..

    This must be one of the loveliest beaches in Victoria. The area is well maintained, and the water is crystal clear.
