Historic Sorrento is the beautiful township on the Southern tip of the Mornington Peninsula and the chosen location for accommodation.  It is a bustling place especially in the summer and with the land being only a few kilometres wide then accommodation Sorrento style is sometimes a rarity.  But we have accommodations available that Sorrento sometimes can’t match (espeically when it comes to value for money) so consider Rye, Blairgowrie and St Andrews Beach as quieter options.

The activities are not all centred around Sorrento either. Yes, the ferry to Queenscliff goes from here and it is the historic heart but there are many attractions throughout the Peninsula. Take a look….


We live on the Mornington Peninsula and have young children of our own, so we know what it takes to keep kids from getting bored.

We are so close to the beach that when it is fabulous weather, keeping them entertained is a breeze. Just walk metres from your door and set up sun umbrellas, towels and games on the beach..entertainment for hours and hours! No stress, but what if the weather isn’t perfect or you just want to see the sights and mix it up a bit. So whether you are in our accommodation at Sorrento, Rye or Blairgowrie you are close to family fun.

The itineraries here are suggestions only (you could probably never do all the suggestions in one day) but they give you a basis to work with.

These are places we have been to and we only recommend attractions and cafes and restaurants when we have experienced them ourselves.


For accommodation Sorrento is perfect for that central location for couples but our Blairgowrie and Rye accommodation is also close by car and whether it is food and wine that you crave, or golf and wine!! Sorrento or its surrounds on the Southern Mornington Peninsula has a truly romantic escape for couples.

Whether you’re arty and into nature or you want a more exciting experience then look no further than our itineraries, suggestions of things to do for the day!


So you need some activities to keep your group entertained for the day, here are our suggestions in the itineraries we have devised.
