Show map


With its fresh sea air, white beaches and buzzing arts community, the nearby Otways and its relaxed Mediterranean atmosphere, Lorne has been attracting holiday makers for more than a century.

Natural attractions
Visit some of the area's stunning surrounds in the Great Otway National Park. Discover the Erskine Falls cascading into a beautiful fern gully, stroll along the banks of the Cumberland River, or take in the view over Loutit Bay.

For those keen on a bit of fishing during their holidays, the Lorne Pier is a great place to cast a line for trevally, barracuda and whiting.

Life by the sea
Whether you're staying overnight or just passing through, take time out to wander down Lorne's main shopping strip filled with boutique gift stores, cellars, cafes and eateries. Relax with a latte at a sidewalk cafe, picnic under the trees on the foreshore, or dine on freshly caught seafood at a local restaurant.

Outdoor arts
Boasting a spirited arts community, Lorne is home to the celebrated Falls Music and Arts Festival that has hosted the likes of The Flaming Lips, Iggy Pop and Public Enemy. Pop into Qdos Arts to check out 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.
