Walking anywhere on the Mornington Peninsula is always exhilarating, but the Millionaire's Walk along the coast of Sorrento to Portsea is a whole new experience, stepping through the backyards of the peninsula's rich and famous.
Starting at the Sorrento Beach rotunda, your walk begins by heading towards Portsea to the west, strolling along The Esplanade, past the historical steam train terminals. Then the real fun begins as you walk along the Sorrento to Portsea clifftop (very safe with good tracks, not too close to the edge), making your way through the yards of some of Melbourne's richest identities, admiring the architecture and ideal landscaped gardens of their holiday hideaways.
Or you might be more drawn to the ocean views, with the private jetties and delighful view of Port Phillip Bay. On a relatively clear day, be sure to look for Queenscliff on the other side of the bay, or even the Melbourne CBD skyscrapers.
At a leisurely pace, you will make it to Portsea within two hours, however if you plan to work up a sweat, you might prefer to turn around at Portsea and come back to your starting point, taking you around three hours as a brisk walk.
Millionaire's Walk is considered a relatively easy walk and is popular with Seniors walking groups.
And if you prefer to be guided along the way, Dunball's Walking Tours finish the two hour leisurely walk with a coffee in Portsea, for $30 per person.
Sorrento, on the Mornington Peninsula, is about an hour's easy drive from Melbourne.
