Lorne Activities & Attractions

Activities & Attractions

There is much to see and do around Lorne. Visit stunning lookouts and waterfalls, explore one of Victoria's natural treasures The Great Otway National Park which covers 103,000 hectares and combines what was the Otway National Park, Angahook-Lorne State Park, Carlisle State Park, Melba Gully State Park and State Forest areas.

Marvel at magnificent fern gullies which surround huge trees, some many hundreds of years old including the prehistoric Giant Southern Beech tree (Nothofagus). The park outside Lorne has 50 kilometres of sign posted walking tracks.

Historic Grave
Historic Grave - approximately 5 kilometers east of Wye River, is a memorial to several seamen who drowned trying to salvage the cargo from the ill fated W. B. Godfrey which was wrecked there in 1891.
The story of the Godfrey is on the display board in front of the lookout just past the grave.
