The picture-postcard seaside town of Lorne is where the beautiful lush Otway forest meets pristine beaches on the waters of Loutit Bay. The charm of Lorne is hard to surpass with mild weather, superb cafes and eateries, specialty shops, boutiques, galleries and musical entertainment. It can easily be described as one of the most popular holiday destinations along the famous Great Ocean Road.


Walking distance from the parks is the Lorne Visitor Information Centre located near the roundabout providing visitors with all they need to know about the area. There are many natural features to enjoy including the sheltered pristine two kilometre beach bordered by lawn, native trees, and picnic & barbecue areas.


It's all about location with easy access to the beaches, Erskine river and in close proximity to the cosmopolitan shopping promenade. There is also the added convenience of the local supermarket right on the doorstep of the parks for all your grocery needs. Visitors can also enjoy a walk to the cascading Erskine Falls amidst the coolness of the lush fern gully in the Great Otway National Park.


Lorne is 140 kilometres south of Melbourne, approximately a 2-hour drive. Travel by car via the Great Ocean Road. Daily coach services are available from Melbourne or rail/coach services via Geelong.
