In 2018 we asked for the community’s input on the Sorrento Coastal and Marine Management Plan. Your feedback inspired the new look and feel of both Websters Corner, Sullivan Bay and Western Sister areas along the cultural walk from the ferry terminal to the Sisters headlands near Blairgowrie.
We’re now well underway with the planning of Sorrento’s new coastal precinct and are excited to share the plans for Websters Corner, Sullivan Bay and Western Sister with you!
Construction is expected to start late 2023/early 2024.
Last year we sought your feedback on the Sorrento Foreshore Masterplan. This is the primary location to access Sorrento's foreshore and includes the area from the Sorrento Ferry Terminal to the Baths Restaurant.
This Masterplan has now been finalised and can be viewed here: Sorrento Foreshore Master Plan.
The Master Plan outlines the design for this key recreational node on the Sorrento foreshore. The design showcases a new playground, new toilets, interpretative signage, cultural trail, new picnic facilities, shade structures and seating. The design will improve connection to the historic sites and improve user experience through better parking as well as easier access to and through the site.
