THE NATURAL WONDER OF BUSH, BEACH AND WATERFALLS
Set between the sparkling waters of Loutit Bay and the majesty of the Otway National Park, Lorne is a spectacular and refreshing place, where the bush meets the beach.
An ideal spot to stop and enjoy on the journey, offering a great range of places to eat and drink, quality accommodation, unique specialty retail and attractions and all the magnificence that is the Otway National Park stretching beyond.
During the whale watching season (from May to September), Lorne is prime spot to capture a glimpse of these amazing sea creatures showing off.
With more than 10 waterfalls within 10 kilometres of Lorne, there are plenty of amazing natural wonders to discover.
Lorne's newest attraction is the Great Ocean Road Heritage Centre, located within the Lorne Visitor Information Centre. The displays and exhibits tell the full historical story of the Great Ocean Road - the story unknown by many - which will make your visit to the region even more rich.
With views of Bass Straight and the Great Ocean Road, Teddy's Lookout is a view not to be missed. And around the corner, you will find stunning waterfalls like the mesmerising Erskine Falls.
ART & CULTURE
If the arts is your thing, you'll feel quite at home with Lorne, which boasts a spirited arts community. Lorne is home to the long celebrated Falls Music Festival and Lorne Festival of The Performing Arts. Pop into Qdos Arts to check out constantly changing exhibits and outdoor sculpture park, or visit in March for the Lorne Sculpture Biennale, when up to 40 works are exhibited along the foreshore.
