Lornes close proximity to
over 140 km, makes this a popular destination for both Australians and
international visitors. With its relaxed cosmopolitan atmosphere, cafes, long
protected sandy beach and huge selection of accommodation, it also makes an
ideal stop for those exploring the surrounding region or travelling the length
of the Great Ocean Road.
For those continuing on along the Great Ocean Road,
it is considered by many that this section of the scenic drive between Lorne and
Apollo Bay, is the best section, as you travel along the high cliffs above the
ocean waves crashing into the rocks below. The opportunity to stop and enjoy the
many scenic lookouts that take in views include Mount Defiance Lookout (just 10
km south of Lorne) and Cape Patton.
Check out our range of
Lorne accommodation and
