Did you know a steam tram used to run along the main street of Sorrento carrying passengers from Melbourne on paddle steamers to Sorrento Back Beach for the day? Over 4,000 day trippers were known to arrive on some days for a day of ocean beach swimming. After several hours, a warning whistle announced that it was time to return to the pier and catch the steamer home.
