1 Lorne beach
Lorne 3232, VIC

Lorne is one of Victoria's premier holiday destinations, with the popular beach paralleling the Great Ocean Road. A well-established foreshore reserve separates the road and main street from the beach. The reserve has extensive parking, parks and a pool. The Lorne Surf Life Saving Club was formed in 1948 and occupies the southern corner. Its members average 50 rescues annually, attesting to its popularity, as well as the surf conditions. The beach is 1.2 km long, running almost due south from the usually closed mouth of the Erskine River and its adjacent rock platforms. The southern end is bordered by the long sandstone rock platform that extends 1 km out to Point Grey and the Lorne wharf. Point Grey affords the beach considerable protection, with waves averaging 1 m. These produce a low, wide, attached bar, with rips only occurring during and following higher waves. In addition, six small wooden groynes and one large rock groyne have been built across the beach, supposedly to prevent beach erosion.
