Love Lorne - Top 3 cultural events

Once known as a sleepy seaside town along the Great Ocean Road, Lorne has now evolved into an impressive little cultural hub. Focused on developing their little pocket of Australia, the Lorne community has focused on supporting the local businesses, with the restaurants and cafes relying on local regional produce to support the nearby farmers. With a community of around 950 people, you’ll get the welcoming feeling that ‘everyone knows everyone’ and you’re sure to experience service with a smile! For that feeling of switching off from big city life, Mantra Lorne is the perfect place for a weekend escape.

For a small town, the Lorne calendar is jam-packed with notable exhibitions and festivals. To experience the cultural side of Lorne, the below events are must-visits!

Ytravel blog founders, Caz & Craig stayed with Mantra during their trip to Lorne, and found themselves desiring a repeat trip! 

“I was surprised at how pretty it was and I knew it was a place to return one day for a much longer stay. Three nights just wasn’t enough to enjoy the chill factor…There’s a lovely walk along the beach and cliffs from the Erskine River to Lorne Pier. The fisherman’s co-op sells fresh seafood from the morning’s catch here.”
