Lorne is one of the many seaside towns dotted along the famous Great Ocean Road. Located on the mouth of the Erskine River, Lorne is a very popular Victorian seaside town. There is plenty to do in Lorne, the beach provides good surf and swimming, and the parks are great for walking and hiking. Lorne has some lovely guesthouses and restaurants as well.
Angahook-Lorne State Park
This park is 22,000 hectares of hilly, lush rainforest with over 50km of walking trails.
Great Ocean Road
It is widely accepted that the Great Ocean Road stretch from Lorne to Apollo Bay is the most spectacular. The road hugs the coast on steep cliffs and has many lookouts and sandy beaches to stop at along the way.
Otway National Park
The Otway Ranges are located west of Lorne and run parallel with the rugged Southern Ocean coastline. There are good walking trails, picnic areas, camping grounds and plenty of native wildlife and bird spotting to do in here.
This alternative art gallery is surrounded by the bush and has lots of indoor and outdoor displays and exhibitions. There is also a cafe here and you can catch a lot of local artists working on their masterpieces. 35 Allenvale Road (03 5289 1989)
