About Sorrento
Previously called the Mooro by the Whadjuk Aboriginal people, Sorrento is a suburb in Western Australia named after an Italian seaside town. The suburb originated from a sales dispute between John Letred Lacepede and Robert Jame Geneff, though is said that the two remained good friends. The former created the settlement.

This suburb owns a long stretch of beautiful coast popular among local and foreign tourists. Just a little bit off the coast is Marmion Marine Park, home to an abundance of marine animals. This is a very popular area attraction.

For most parts, Sorrento is a residential suburb. It is comprised of families and residents from all walks of life - trades people, service employees, professionals, and even managers and supervisors. Thus, homes and parks of all sizes are abundant in the area but residents have to go to neighboring areas to shop. Popular options include the shopping centers in Seacrest Village, Warwick, and Whitford City.

School children attend the public Sorrento Primary School. On the other hand, older students attend Duncraig Senior High School at the neighboring suburb of Duncraig. Students of all ages can also opt to attend the Catholic private school, Sacred Heart College.

Marmion Avenue bounds Sorrento at the east side while the ocean and West Coast Drive bounds the suburb at the west side. To the north is Hepburn Avenue. Meanwhile, travelers can reach the suburb from the south through Marine Terrace. The suburb is served by bus routes 423 and 441 coming from Warwick Railway Station.

Suburbs located immediately after the boundaries of Sorrento are Hillarys, Padbury, Duncraig, and Marmion.
