Sorrento Beach Resort, it’s as close as you’ll get to the ocean without getting your feet wet. Sitting on the glitzy Sunset coast, this premium beach-side hotel is a fine choice when exploring the area of Sorrento.
Sorrento Beach Resort is just 20 minutes’ drive northwest of Perth and within walking distance of one of the state’s premier tourist destinations, Hillarys Boat Harbour. This marina attracts more than four million visitors annually. It is home to a large selection of award-winning restaurants and cafes, a bustling retail precinct, water fun park, Sorrento boardwalk and sheltered swimming beach. No matter the time of year there’s an incessant holiday buzz, with live music, events and displays to keep both locals and tourists entertained.
A guarantee on every ‘Top 10 Perth attractions’ list is nearby AQWA. The Aquarium of Western Australia showcases the spectacular marine life of the WA coastline. Whether diving with sharks at the ‘shipwreck coast’ or touching starfish in the kid-friendly ‘discovery pool’, AQWA is a place of awe-inspiring discovery and education.
