Sorrento Things to Do

  • Sorrento-Portsea Artists' Trail

    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...

  • Ray 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...

  • Dolphins, Ferrys...the lot.

    check out www.visitvictoria.com for the latest on the ferry from sorrento to queenscliff...and the dolphin watching, etc. Out of the whole mornington peninsula...this is a great place to spend a day....

  • Glorious Sunset

    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.

  • 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.

  • Jet-ski Cowboys

    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.

  • Sorrento - Queenscliff Ferry

    Ahhh... the Ferry awaits.. Time for our return trip across Port Phillip Bay. I was waiting to see the sunset on our way back to Queenscliff, and hoping it wasn't too early.

  • Continental 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.

  • Sorrento Sweets

    This little granny was well placed at the entrance of the sweets shop.. such an inviting figure. Had to go in and see what they had on offer.

    more
  • Anzac 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.

  • More Beaches

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

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

  • Seals lazing on bouys.

    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..

    more
  • Dolphins everywhere..

    This is not an unusual sight, when out on these waters. Dolphins love to follow any seacraft, and it was no different on this trip..

    more
  • Diving and swimming with Dolphins..

    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...

  • Siteseeing.. around 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..

    more
  • Parks and Gardens 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.

    more
  • 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.

  • Best seafood restaurant in Victoria

    John Rubira had a seafood restaurant in Fitzroy, an inner city suburb of Melbourne. This restaurant was housed in a non-descript pub but was frequented by seafood lovers from all over town. Many captains of industry would be found there at long lunches, often not leaving until their family members joined them for dinner.You can imagine the...

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Morgans bar is located right by the beach, so if you feel like some refreshments, while enjoying a beach day, you don't have far to walk. This place seemed to be popular, as there were many seated outside on the sidewalk.

    A fantastic view of Port Phillip Bay, you can only get a view like this from a boat. The weather was great and the sea looked wonderful, a perfect start to our Great Ocean Road holiday.
