Lorne is about an hours drive from Geelong along the Great Ocean Road. Just traveling along the Great Ocean Road makes Lorne a worthwhile destination alone. Lorne is a very popular seaside destination and quite a reasonable size town. It has much better shopping than most beach areas and nearly all of it faces the ocean.
Lorne offers a great surf beach directly opposite the town with lifesavers present during the summer months. You can have a swim, duck across the road for a drink or something to eat, then straight back onto the beach again.
I have stayed in Lorne on several occasions and have always enjoyed the eclectic feel of shopping and dining. Although a long way from major cities Lorne offers sophisticated dining as well as smart boutique shopping shopping so don’t feel you might miss out on your essential lifestyle here.
