Luxury, Romantic and Boutique Accommodation in Lorne

The quintessential summer holiday town.
Prepare to embrace the Lorne lifestyle and top-notch accommodation

Lorne lies at the heart of the Great Ocean Road, a popular stop for travellers winding their way along this rugged coastal highway. From scenic hikes and waterfall walks to fishing, surfing or a simple ocean dip, the options for getting back to nature here are endless.

As one of the most popular towns on the Great Ocean Road, it will come as no surprise that Lorne's population peaks during summer. City-slickers flock to Lorne's sandy shores to soak up Vitamin D and the bush-meets-beach vibe. Lorne accommodation tends to fill up fast, so if a beach break is on your mind, make sure to get in early. You might also join the hordes of summer holidaymakers who head down in January for the Pier to Pub, a 1.2km ocean swim from the Lorne Pier to the surf club. Prefer to stay on land? The Great Ocean Road Marathon takes place each May, with both the full and half marathons starting in Lorne. Reward your exertions with a helping of fried-to-perfection fish and chips, best enjoy on a grassy patch along the foreshore, and follow up with a wander to Teddy's Lookout.

Beaches and sports aren't the only pursuits Lorne lays claim to. If you would rather a little luxury, you can opt for winery visits, spa treatments and massages. Whether you take pleasure in the outdoors or prefer pampering to unwind, Lorne has something for everyone – and the perfect boutique accommodation to match.

There is also a solid arts community at Lorne. Two festivals - Falls Music Festival and Lorne Festival of the Performing Arts - are annual fixtures on the town's event calendar, and a handful of galleries feature regularly changing exhibits and displays. Swing past the Great Ocean Road Heritage Centre, located within Lorne Visitor Information Centre, to brush up on your Great Ocean Road history. 

Lorne accommodation covers everything from classic beach houses to sleek bush-flanked stays, quaint cottages and comfortable hotel rooms. Choose from our handpicked selection, or browse other Victoria accommodation options.
