Sorrento is a small suburb near the tip of the Mornington Peninsula. With a population of 1,600 residents, the land was originally of the Boon wurrung people before European settlers made it their home.
Spectacular views await those who make the journey up Sorrento’s many cliffs, with the regular ferries providing something interesting to watch while up there. Elevated coastal walkways provide wider coverage on these scenic views.
Some of these walkways are quite famous, such as the Sorrento-Portsea Artists’ Trail, which is attributed as the inspiration for masterpieces by John Perceval, Sir Arthur Streeton, Sidney Nolan, and Albert Tucker.
On top of the usual fishing activities, the Polperro Dolphin Swims company allows the brave a chance to swim with friendly Bottlenose and Burrunan Dolphins in the nearby waters.
