A walk around Sorrento’s village is experiencing living 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. Live the good life amid Sorrento’s imposing limestone buildings, whether you’re dining by the water, browsing galleries and boutiques or swimming alongside dolphins.
Wander down Hesse Street and find exemplary displays of heritage architecture, art galleries, shops and great places to dine. Linger over cream tea in a cafe or step into one of the many hotels and restaurants for some contemporary regional fare. Pick up local produce at specialty shops and community markets or a piping-hot parcel of fish and chips for a seaside picnic under the shade of giant foreshore pines.
