Lorne is a beach playground for Melbournians. It has soft white sand beaches and playground amenities for kids.
The Cumberland Centre is a great Conference centre/ appartments/ restruants and there is also a Mantra Hotel complex 10 minutes away. Attractions include a 2 hour drive to the 12 Apostles marine park, Bell's beach surf break and access to Ottway range national park and inland craft outlets.
Lovely place for stopover if you are doing the Great Ocean Road. We enjoyed many hours at the beautiful beach.
Firstly, the Great Ocean Road is a must drive because of its great scenic views along the bendy coastal road.
Next, the main attraction other than the road itself got to be The Twelve Apostles. Also, there are many high lookout points which provide breathtaking panoramic views. Lastly, there is a great burger shop located at Lorne which we absolutely love.
