Travel Blogs from Lorne
It was only a one night stop over stay at Lorne to break our journey on the long Ocean Road. Lorne is a very small sea side town that proved very popular with the younger element of us, the back packer and surfer alike. It is that popular that we were quite fortunate to find this studio apartment still available and once again it was down to the …
Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Some strange things happened. David's going round the twist...
...So excited was he to find out that our lunch stop today, Split Point Lighthouse at Airey's Inlet, was The lighthouse from well-loved kid's TV series Round the Twist. You only have to look at the photos to see his glee! Even I was quite tickled; I mean, who doesn't remember the incoragable ...
... back down! I don’t normally have a problem with heights,
but as the structure sways slightly, it was a little scary! It was a very peaceful hour’s walk and quite steep
in places. So more fool me when I
decided to try and find the Triple Waterfall nearby – down an unmade
track! The sign warned it was an hour’s
round trip to walk to the falls, but it didn’t say how steep the walk is! Thankfully they have stepped the path – ...
... Islands and stopped at a couple of lookouts. The rocks are made of limestone so they are eroding away and making huge columns and different shapes in the outcrops and cliffs. One was called the London Bridge and part of it collapsed in 1990 leaving a family stranded on the far side till a helicopter picked them up. Tom thought this was totally cool when we knew that no one was hurt.
We spent the night in a studio cabin for $125.00 a night ...
... a couple of snaps and got back in to the car pronto. Garry wanted to be able to say he had driven the great ocean road too so he drove back to Lorne and it was great to see the road from both ways. We parked up at the seafront carpark back in Lorne and started to sort out the car as we would be giving it back tomorrow. We had one last walk on an Australian beach and walked to the supermarket to pick up something for dinner and then headed back to camp where ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Anchorage Motel Lorne
Over looking central facilities. Pity about there being no hand towels, only one flannel, no plug for the sink and freshly scattered crumbs on the sofa. Told there would be wi fi and landline. There was but neither worked. Plenty of excuses though. On arrival kept waiting for ages while male attendant rang and spoke to a friend about cars. On leaving was kept waiting at reception to hand my key in. Not good enough really. These people should realise that they are there for our benefit,we are not there for theirs...need to improve welcoming skills.
