Sorrento is a popular tourist destination on the Mornington Peninsula, located between the neighbouring communities of Portsea and Blairgowrie
Like its neighbours, Sorrento is situated on a thin strip of the Mornington Peninsula, facing Port Phillip Bay in the north and the open waters of Bass Strait in the south.
The crescent-shaped Sorrento Front Beach is flanked by an attractive foreshore area featuring lawns, shelters and English trees, plus a couple of small jetties. At Policemans Point is the Sorrento Pier which is used by a passenger and car ferry which links Sorrento to Queensclife on the Bellarine Peninsula.
The main point of access to Sorrento's ocean beach is at the end of Ocean Beach Road. There is a kiosk, lookouts and several scenic walking tracks along the foreshore and into the surrounding hills.
Sorrento's commercial centre is located at the bay end of Ocean Beach Road. This attractive boulevard features a variety of shops, restaurants and cafes
Golf: Sorrento Golf Course is a well groomed, hilly course with all year playability set on a sand and limestone base. It's generous fairways and roughs are surrounded by densely wooded plantations, and bent grass greens are moderately to heavily bunkered. When Melbourne's early stalwarts travelled to the Mornington Peninsula for their holidays, they took their golf along with them.
The Sorrento Golf Club became the 'Royal Melbourne of the South', a course built on classic lines, borrowed from the original, for the joy and pleasure of golfers good and bad - 18 holes, each with a character all its own, challenging you to a rematch, over and over again. The Club invites you to share its treasure, enjoy its beauty and record a score you can boast about.
You can arrange your own tournaments within your group, conducted by the Club's professional John Horvath, and present your winners over superb dining with fine wines in the old Australian charm of the original Club House.
