While the weather is starting to cool down, plenty of sunshine-filled days are still ahead. The forecast: a mini staycation at Quality Resort Sorrento Beach

This autumn, settle in by the seaside at the ultimate beachfront escape located just a 20 minute drive northwest from the heart of Perth CBD.

Situated only 76 steps from the turquoise waters of Sorrento Beach, Quality Resort Sorrento Beach (QRSB) has earned the title of being the closest resort location to the beach in Western Australia.

A few more steps and you’ll reach Hillarys Boat Harbour – an award-winning tourist precinct loved just as much by locals. Perfect for daytime leisure activities and evening entertainment, it is also home to the Aquarium of Western Australia (AQWA), our State’s most iconic marine attraction. Fun fact: AQWA has Australia’s largest single aquarium which holds an incredible three million litres of flowing seawater.

Perth is all about the beaches and outdoor lifestyle. For ocean lovers, the resort is perfectly located to jump aboard Rottnest Fast Ferries and cruise over to WA’s most beloved island for a day of quokka-filled seaside adventures.

If staying local is more your thing, nearby Marmion Marine Park is a snorkelling and diving oasis of reefs, caves and crystal-clear shallow lagoons. Our favourite part? You can access some of the best snorkelling right off the beach at Mettams Pool (it’s perfect for beginners!).

Quality Resort Sorrento Beach is the ideal location for couples and families, with plenty of things to do (or not do) while staying alongside the white sands of Sorrento Beach on Perth’s Sunset Coast

Postcard beaches, amazing eateries and scenery that will blow your mind - deciding what to do during your staycation is the hardest part. So, we've laid out some options for you based on the resort's current packages.

The school holiday staycation  

The Easter school holidays are just around the corner, and Quality Resort Sorrento Beach’s 2 night Family AQWA Getaway package (with a complimentary family pass to AQWA) has everything you and your family need to make the most out of your school holiday adventure!

Day one

Before you check-in, spend the day entering ultimate relaxation mode by the ocean. Sorrento Beach is one of the safest, family-friendly beaches Perth has to offer. This picturesque stretch of soft white sand and clear waters offer calm conditions all year round.

3pm | After a relaxing day, check in to your spacious 4-star 2 Bedroom Apartment and explore the resort's facilities (you'll all love the outdoor swimming pool and spa!).

6pm | After a swim or spa, enjoy the sunset followed by an early, low-key dinner using the BBQ facilities within the resort. If cooking isn't on the cards (we totally get it!), take a short stroll to Hillarys Boat Harbour and grab a bite to eat at one of the many eateries.

Day two

8am | First things first. Fill up on the complimentary continental buffet breakfast in the alfresco dining area at 76 Steps Cafe Restaurant.

10am |It’s time to plunge into the underwater world of our diverse Western Australian oceans at AQWA. Come face-to-fin with sharks, stingrays and turtles in Australia’s largest underwater tunnel. Hint: check out the free daily talks, tours and feeds, and discover sea life up close at the touch pool – a favourite for kids! 

1pm | Lunchtime! Treat the family to traditional fish ‘n’ chips while soaking up the views and atmosphere of Hillarys Boat Harbour.

2:00pm | If you still have some energy left in the tank, it’s time for Ultimate Watersports. Try your hand at jet skiing, stand-up paddleboarding, wakeboarding and more. Ultimate Watersports cater to all abilities and also offer lessons in a safe environment to get the best out of the experience.

6:00pm | By this time, it’s likely that you’re too spent (in a good way!) to think about planning dinner. Stick around at the Hillarys Boat Harbour precinct and enjoy another one of the many local restaurants.

Day three

10am | After another delicious breakfast at 76 Steps Cafe Restaurant, it’s time to check out. End the getaway on a relaxing note with a picnic and family walk at Lake Goollelal or take the family to experience the nearby Landsdale Farm. It's equal parts fun and educational for the little ones!
