Lorne Region - Things To Do & Upcoming Events 

Lorne is situated on Louttit Bay, just a two-hour drive west of Melbourne, Victoria. It offers plenty to do such as surfing with great waves for those who are just beginning and for the more experienced (just remember to be patient when trying to grab a wave among the 50 surfers that can line up at the point when it works). Over the New Year’s holidays, the Falls Festival draws in international headline acts along with 15,000 revellers. Add in the famous Pier-to-Pub swim, held a weekend later – which started as an informal challenge between the Lorne Surf Life Saving Club members over 20 years ago (and is now the biggest open water swimming event in the world, capped at 4,000 swimmers) – Lorne is a pit-stop not to be missed when travelling on the Great Ocean Road.
