An excellent surfing spot, with various annual events, dining options to suit every palate, a soothing Mediterranean vibe and more – there are several reasons why Lorne is so favoured among travellers in Australia. And yet, the beautiful beachside town retains an intimate charm that sets it apart from the usual crowded holiday destinations.
Located on iconic Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Lorne is just two hours southwest of Melbourne and is as ideal for a relaxed vacation as it is for a quick weekend trip. While here, admire the magnificent Erskine Falls, go for a bush walk, discover rock pools at Shelley Beach, sign up for surf lessons, and stroll along the Lorne Pier.
May to September is whale watching season in Lorne, so you can join a tour. When it comes to holiday accommodation in the region, beach houses are popular, thanks to the town's coastal location and spectacular views. Renting your own holiday house in Lorne will helps you experience this Aussie town in true local style.
