Picture perfect park and playground
Sorrento Park rotunda

Sorrento park has been a favourite of our family for many years. It has wonderful bay views, beautifully landscaped gardens, a wonderful playground, perfect lawns for picnicking and beautiful big cedar shade trees in the summer.


The playground is a wooden castle construction and the pickets surrounding the playground have families names on them that helped fund the playground. It has a great community spirit to it and surprisingly unpretentious for the area. The views are absolutely stunning all year round, I can not rate it highly enough.

The playground is a very safe construction and suitable from toddlers up. Play equipment includes swings, slides, steps, chains, sand, hiding spots in the wooden structure, climbing frames, and balance activities.

Queenscliff ferry

The kids love watching the Queenscliff to Sorrento car ferry travelling to and fro and run to the fence to watch it load and unload. Until only a few years ago the Southern Peninsula Rescue helicopter base was in use and quite often children would be allowed to sit in the helicopter, which was always very special.

Path towards the ferry terminal

The park has many BBQs dotted throughout the park and there is a rotunda that is very popular for couples getting married. Facilities are always well maintained and there is plenty of car parking.

Across to the bay

Sorrento Park is large and has enough room for everyone from the boisterous children wanting to burn energy and at the same time it is very tranquil if you're trying to find a spot to sit in the sun for some well deserved rest and relaxation.

Table tennis anyone?

After visiting the park and playground why not head into Sorrento and have a look at the shops, grab an ice cream and enjoy all Sorrento has to offer?
