Chic and Delish
Lorne has an enchanting small town warmth mingled with a delightful touch of urban chic. Mountjoy Parade is home to galleries, crafts, specialty shops, provedores and boutiques. This resort-style town dishes up some of the finest cuisine on the coast.
It’s a Shore Thing
Lorne’s foreshore is the hub of beachside action – kids are wild about the adventure playground, trampolines, mini golf, swimming pool and skate park. Stroll along the foreshore cliff walk to the pier and Fishermen’s Co-op. If you love your seafood, check out the day’s catch and take home a barbecue winner.
Always in Season
Lorne is for all seasons, from summer fun among the crowds, to strolling along the beach under a winter’s rainbow, exploring the forest that comes alive after a downpour or scouting for whales that wander by in the cooler months.
Choose from dozens of close-to-town bush, coastal or waterfall walking tracks. Many originate from Sheoak picnic ground, and ever-popular Erskine Falls is a highlight. The unforgiving coast has claimed many a ship – unearth tragic tall ship tales as you stroll the Historical Shipwreck Trail. Take a tour, a surfing safari, try sea kayaking, put a mountain bike through its paces, have a hit of tennis or play a round of golf.
Waterfalls – Go With the Flow
There are more than ten waterfalls within 10km of Lorne – try Henderson, Phantom, Sheoak, Kalimna and Cumberland Falls for starters. Erskine Falls is a must-see and a beautifully cool spot to be on a warm day. It’s snap-worthy so take the camera – water crashes down a 30-metre drop into a fern-lined valley.
