Sorrento is a beautiful and historic village that has retained much of its heritage in the form of the gorgeous limestone buildings that line the main street of Ocean Beach Road. The village offers shopping that is stylish and sophisticated, with more than 60 retail outlets including boutiques, interior design stores, galleries and antique outlets. Naturally, the cafes, restaurants local produce stores and designer ice-cream are superb.


Lying to the west of Blairgowrie near the western tip of the Mornington Peninsula, Sorrento’s main street runs from the bay beach beside the calm waters of Port Phillip in the north, to the Sorrento Ocean beaches fronting the rough waters of Bass Strait in the south.

The crescent-shaped Sorrento bay beach offers soft white sand and shallow waters, making it ideal for swimming and additional water activities. It is here you will find the Sorrento Pier and the departure point for the iconic car and passenger ferry to Queenscliff, as well as fishing trips, seal and dolphin watching excursions, sight-seeing cruises, yacht charters and diving trips.

Sorrento’s ocean beaches have popular rock pools but also offer excellent surfing for the experienced – care must be taken when swimming as deep rips operate along this coastline. Walks along and around these beaches are picturesque and alluring, providing unbeatable sea vistas.

Sorrento is approximately a 1 hour and 35 minute drive (110 kilometres) south of Melbourne.
