LORNE – HERE AND THERE
Past weekends have seen visitor numbers on the coast replicate what we would normally experience at Easter and this pending Labour Day weekend is shaping to be a belter. With most accommodation houses and caravan parks booked out, the improving weather pattern through the weekend is certain to drive the day trippers towards us in droves. The Lorne Angling and Aquatic Club continue their proactive activities and this Sunday are co-ordinating their members to be involved in clean-up Lorne day. Arguably Lorne’s most active community club the “Anglers team” are devoting their Sunday morning by having their members and friends devoting their time to Lorne’s enemy number 1 – rubbish.
While our Government Agencies struggle to stay on top of the growing problem that comes with unprecedented numbers, the “Anglers” are showing the way, pulling up their sleeves and getting the job done – great work! For all those that join their voluntary working bee there will be lunch served at the club and the chance to enjoy a couple of Lorne’s coldest refreshments from midday onwards.clean up.jpg

 

 

LORNE – MARKET ROUND UP
There is never a dull moment in real estate on the coast and the past week has been no different. The buzz words of the past seven days have been “Mad Max’s home”. And for good reason, it poises the first opportunity for a Great Ocean Road residence to break through the $10 million barrier. The original home was built for the successful Geelong Civil Construction family, the Wellams. The residence gained its name and fame through the shooting of the original Mad Max movie as Mel Gibson’s “unique hideaway”. Of recent time Boost Juice founder Janine Allis has transferred the residence into a modern masterpiece that it is today. Having been involved in the sale of the residence on two previous occasions, one cannot speak highly enough of its unique location and what it offers. We wish the sellers luck and fingers crossed the first ten million-dollar sale for the coast is not too far away.

Demand here in Lorne across all sectors continues to be strong and whether it be one bedroom studio apartments under $300,000 or multi million dollar homes, anything within the Lorne town boundaries is attracting buyer interest.


Kind regards,

LORNE – A LITTLE SECRET
The work on the natural stone walls preventing the ocean erosion at Cathedral Rock is well underway and coming together like the perfect jigsaw. The meticulously placed boulders are individually placed on the embankment creating a robust sea wall. If you’re driving into Lorne this weekend, make sure you have a look.
