Lorne, the mere mention of this famous town sends the mind to beautiful beaches, bustling roadside cafes and an endless Summer. Once a place for holidays alone Lorne has fast become a viable town for permeant residents with regional centre Geelong an hour away. Lorne is the jewel in the Great Ocean Road as cruising by tourists and holiday makers are drawn to this place due to the stunning beaches and abundance of accommodation. From camp grounds to the million dollar view Lorne holds its own as one of the premier destination towns in Australia.
The Best Surf Located
Lorne Front beach has a sensation surf spot which caters for beginners to full down the line hard turning wave machines. It also has a number of breaks either side of the town if you want to move away a little and plan a day trip from Lorne. For the Lorne wave to work it has to have the right day but when it does go it is worth the wait!
Erskine Falls is a 30 metre waterfall fed by local rainwater that features at the end of two looped walks. On the right day the mist created by the drop is a refreshing way to soak in this magnificent wilderness area. From Lorne you can take the trail right to the falls, so if the surf’s bad head inland for a breath of amazing forest.
