Take a 40-minute ride on a car ferry from Sorrento to historic Queenscliff; keep an eye out for the dolphins that sometimes follow the boat. The Queenscliff Maritime Museum collection includes a big heavy brass diving helmet that kids can try on, a lifeboat, rocket launching equipment used for lifesaving, shipwreck artefacts and ships’ models. In Queenscliff you can also visit the Marine Discovery Centre where kids can get their hands into an educational aquarium filled with marine life from Port Phillip; (03) 5258 3344 (limited opening hours).
