Introducing Lorne

Lorne has an incredible natural beauty, something you see vividly as you drive into town from Aireys Inlet. Old, tall gumtrees line its hilly streets, and Loutit Bay gleams irresistibly. It’s this beauty that has attracted visitors for centuries – Rudyard Kipling’s 1891 visit led him to pen the poem Flowers: ‘Gathered where the Erskine leaps/Down the road to Lorne…’.

It gets busy; in summer you’ll be competing with day-trippers for restaurant seats and lattes, but, thronged by tourists or not, Lorne is a lovely place to hang out.
