Things to do in Sorrento

Sorrento’s blend of natural attractions, seaside charm, casual sophistication and intriguing history, have always been a winning combination. Stroll through town amid Sorrento’s imposing limestone buildings, explore the galleries, browse chic boutiques and cafes. Cool off with a day on the beach, swim alongside dolphins, or easily escape to the surrounding areas of the Mornington Peninsula for gourmet delights at boutique wineries.

Walk around Sorrento’s village to experience its history, but for a detailed look at the region’s remarkable history, make your way to the Nepean Historical Museum and Pioneer Cottage, and Collins Settlement Historic Site.

A mecca for water sports enthusiasts, from sailing and snorkelling, to swimming with the seals and dolphins. Sorrento is also perfectly placed for exploration of the other Peninsula on the Bay – The Bellarine. Queenscliff is just a short and enjoyable ferry trip across the Bay on the Queenscliff Car & Passenger Ferry.
