Wow what a great free attraction? Amazing that the local government actually maintain it and don’t charge you to walk it. The track is a little hard in places, but you are well rewarded. I wouldn’t try the walk on your own. Best to go...More

The beachfront at Lorne pretty well has everything. Swim between the flags or jump on the board and catch some waves. All good. There's nothing quite like walking along ocean beaches. Soothes the soul. Give it a try.
