    Sorrento - Mornington Peninsula

    Demographics 5.5% of Sorrento’s population is UK-born migrants and this is the largest migrant group in the suburb. The Mornington Peninsula is predominately english with the majority of residents being Australian or UK-born migrants. Scottish, American and Italian migrants are also common in the suburb. These migrant groups are also the next largest behind UK-born migrants in Sorrento and on the Mornington Peninsula. German, Irish, Dutch, Welsh, New Zealander and French migrants are also smaller migrant groups in the area. The area was originally popular with wealthy retirees and still is. However, the suburb has since become very family orientated with good schools. The area mostly consists of Managers, Professionals and Clerical/Administrative Workers. In Sorrento 50.2% of residents are Christians and 39.1% have no religion. Transport Point Nepean Rd near the beach is the more scenic way of navigating the area. The Mornington Peninsula Freeway is also nearby for a quicker commute to Melbourne. The closest train station is in Frankston however there has been plans to electrify the train line to the Mornington Peninsula in Baxter. Real Estate Sorrento’s median house price is $1,370,000 (November 2018) and the median house price has increased by $110,000 in the past 12 months (November 2018). Rents are also affordable in 2018 with a median of $525. Shopping The Sorrento shopping village is very popular with lovely cafes, clothing stores and restaurants.
  2. Hi We arrived in Perth 10 days ago. No jobs yet but also been looking at suburbs. We like Sorrento. Does anyone have any experience of the area and primary school? TIA
  3. Immaculate 2 story home to rent in Sorrento - Perth. Features 4 Huge bedrooms (all with BIR) & 2 luxury bathrooms which are en-suite to two bedrooms with double sinks, seperate showers and baths (1 x spa bath). 2 Balconys, 1 with sea views. Theatre room. Modern kitchen with stainless appliances which overlooks tiled family dining area and leads onto an outdoor alfesco area. Good size laundry room. Outdoors is low maintenance with undercover alfresco area lined with plants and a artificial lawn. Double automatic garage. Large Drive. Located within walking distance to the beach, Hillarys Boat Harbour and coastal cafe strip - just in time for summer. Be Quick, wont be around long! (Break Lease) $775 p.w PM me for details. If you are looking at moving from the U.K, Sorrento -Perth is a fantastic area to bring your family too. Excellent local school (as long as you in the Sorrento catchment- which this house is), within walking distance to great beaches, restaurants, parks, surf club and a very friendly/safe place to live. We are sadly having to leave as we now need a 5Bed rental - otherwise we would be staying as it's a great modern family home, in a great location.
  4. Hi everyone... My husband has just got a job offer in west Perth so will be out there early next year??? Ive been looking on real estate at area's as we would prefer to live near the beach?? Liked the look of Sorrento but quite pricey.....and then saw Duncraig which seemed reasonably priced and close enough to the beach?? All the locals think its a great area??? (from the website) Anyone live there?? Looking at schools and Kindergartens etc but ive found the websites for them are defo not as informative as other states such as Melbourne?? We want somewhere with a good amount of parks and a variety of restaraunts/cafe's shopping options....close enough... I be grateful of anyones feedback as we know nobody in perth....There all in Melbourne....or Adelaide.... Cheers Nichola
  5. I have a stupid question. I am looking for some advice about some weekend getaways in Melbourne and around. The problem is we don't own a car and I was wondering, especially as some of you lovely guys are living there, if you would recommend going to Mornington, Mt Martha or Sorrento by car (rental) or public transport. I have checked Metlink and I can see there are a couple of buses leaving from Frankston which I think is the last train stop. But is it doable in one day to go to Mornington, and maybe take a boat to Phillip and French Island and go back home? (Home is St Kilda.) Sorry if my question sounds stupid. I am really without a clue, and we have not had the time to see a lot in or outside Melbourne let alone Australia so we thought it might be a good idea to start with something nearby. Any advice would be much appreciated.:wubclub:
  6. Hi, I wondered if anyone would be able to help me.... We are relocating from Melbourne to Perth at the end of the year. We are looking to settle in the Hillarys, Sorrento area. I have spoken to both primary schools, both of which were very helpful and friendly. I know both have catchment areas. Basically the school we choose will therefore determine where we live. Does anyone know what sort of reputations these schools have, or schools in surrounding neighbourhoods? Do any of you have kids in these schools? Any information would be appreciated. Thanks. Rach :wubclub:

    Any discounts on Sorrento ferry?

    Anyone aware of any way to get discounted tickets for the ferry (apart from the 10% offered for bulk purchases)? We've got a few trips coming up but not enough to need 10 tickets!
