Get off the Tracks
Sorrento Foreshore is one of the most visited destinations along the Mornington Peninsula. The perfect location to watch Searoad Ferries hourly arrival and departure, admire sailors tinkering on their yachts, dine at The Baths restaurant, play in the sand, paddle in the water or just get lost in your thoughts.

Across the road from the foreshore, there is a hidden gem at Policemans Point.
Policemans Point Track to Steam Tram Platfor
A path entrance located on The Esplanade diagonal to the Searoad Ferry terminal, leads you up a winding path to find a prime clifftop location that is home to a restored platform and remnants of the old steam tram which operated in Sorrento between 1890 -1920, transferring up to 20,000 passengers during peak season between Sorrento Pier and the Back beach.
Steam Tram Platform Restored
A walk along the tracks is a real treat for the kids unless they are sticklers for the rules as we were told to "watch out" and "get off the tracks" by our concerned 2yo.
Looking at the remnants of the old tracks
Towards the top end of Ocean Beach Road is flat black café where you can sit and enjoy a cuppa in the old tram cart once used along Ocean Beach Road. This is a great way for the kids to truly understand how the tourists once travelled.
