The areas surrounding Lorne offer plenty of day trips:-
Drive to Apollo Bay to see the fishing fleet, or perhaps book a deep sea fishing trip departing from the harbour.
Drive along the Great Ocean Road to view the famous Twelve Apostles and the magnificent coastal scenery.
View the recently constructed Otway Fly rainforest walk.
Take a 20 minute drive inland to Gentle Annie's Berry Farm situated in the picturesque Pennyroyal Valley. Here you can pick your own fruit, enjoy lunch or afternoon tea and visit the farm shop for delicious preserves. This is a great excursion if the weather is cloudy on the coast, as often it will be fine inland.
Visit the Lorne Information Centre, just across the road from Beachbox 17, for details of these excursions and many more ideas on what to see and do around Lorne.
