Destination view


Lorne is nestled between Loutit Bay and the Otway National Park, bringing the beach and the bush together at your doorstep. It's an ideal spot to stop and enjoy on your journey, there are a great range of places to eat and drink, shop and explore, with 10 waterfalls within 10km of the town.
The Great Ocean Road Heritage Centre located in Lorne's Visitor Complex showcases the historical story of the road carved in rock, a gruelling feat by returned servicemen of World War 1.
During the whale watching season (from May to September), Lorne is a great spot to capture a glimpse of these gentle giants. It is also the perfect spot for surfers with beginner waves at Lorne Beach, a more advanced break at Cathedral Rock in the Great Otway National Park and several other nearby breaks.
