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...more
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...more
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...more
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
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

The whole atmophere...and being on the bay...and after a...more
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...more
Rubira's is set in the old Koonya Hotel on the Sorrento waterfront which was built in 1836 and is now heritage listed. The main restaurant opens out to the foreshore catching the lovely sea breezes and a million dollar view. Rubira's restaurant, which is fully licensed, is open 7 days a week.more
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.
