For many years the picturesque Mornington Peninsula has been an inspiration to a number of famous artists. The Sorrento-Portsea Artists’ Trail brings the works created by these artists to life. The Trail covers the southern most tip of the Mornington Peninsula and is accessed by car and then by foot. The Trail takes you to the area where the artist would have sat to paint. You can walk right up to reproductions of the paintings displayed on stands located as close as possible to the original scene viewed by the artist.
On the Port Phillip side the breathtaking views extend along the beaches and sheltered coastline then expand across the water to the Bellarine Peninsula, Melbourne and Mount Dandenong. This contrasts with the rugged splendor of Bass Strait and the Mornington Peninsula National Park on the ocean beach side.
The Trail includes a section along the Portsea clifftops that is also known as Millionaires Walk. This stunning cliff top walk between Point King Road and Lentell Avenue, also has historic significance as it was there that the Union Jack was first used to claim possession of Australia.
