Road Tripping along the Great Ocean Road is an item on many traveler’s bucket lists when they visit Australia. A favorite stopping point for many people is Lorne, a beautiful resort town in Victoria. Lorne has long been a popular vacation destination for people from Melbourne and for good reason - it has tons to offer.
As a traditional Australian beach town, one of the best things to do in Lorne is to simply relax and unwind by Lorne beach. During the winter months, whales can be spotted here as they embark on their migration. The main street of Lorne is quirky and filled with plenty of art galleries, eateries and boutique stores. Nature lovers will enjoy an excursion out to Erskine Falls - a beautiful waterfall hike that offers incredible views of Victoria and leads trekkers through the lush rainforest.
The best time to visit Lorne is during the Australian spring or autumn when the temperatures are not too hot to enjoy walking and exploring outside. During this time, temperatures range between 75 and 85 degrees.
