Historical Sorrento

On Monday October 11, 2010 I visited the coastal town of Sorrento, 70 km SE of Melbourne, on Port Phillip Bay

See the Album for all of the photos of my exploration!

I have included images of several of the interesting information boards along the Foreshore Reserve, and photos from some of the boards.

Some photos show the Steam Tram which operated from 1880 until 1921, on a 2 km 3'6" double-gauge track, linking the Front Beach and Ocean Beach.

This Tram ran along Ocean Beach Rd, and a footbridge at the Pier up to the platform allowed visitors to join the tram after alighting from steamers.

The Tram didnn't operate every day - some days it was replaced by a horsedrawn carriage.
