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 …
Made our way out of Melbourne, via Geelong to the start of the Great Ocean Road at Torquay. Almost immediately, we were treated to spectacular ocean views - rough rocks, crashing waves - superb! Lovely beaches to stop off at for coffee (from our own flask, which Anne managed to spill all over her clean dress!). Our first stop was Lorne, reasonably …
... who, one episode, got frog powers (I'm assuming here that, like David and I, you're around 30...or are our parents).
After such excitement, it was going to be hard for the rest of the day to compete. Except, it turns out, when you're driving completely adjacent to the ocean (I understand now why it's been dubbed The Great Ocean Road), not that hard. Whether you're driving next to the water, or looking ...
... Port Campbell Holiday Park. It would of cost $51.00 to camp. It cools down pretty good at night when the sun sets, but is very hot during the day. Not complaining, just stating a fact. LOL

OMG what an excellent start to the day. This is the first time I have ever been in a helicopter. Tom took some pictures and some video, I rode in the front seat by the pilot and didn't want to miss anything taking pictures. ...
... to a deep growl. We had hoped to spot some glow worms further up in the National Park, but decided it was too far as the light was fading fast, and thought it may be a little scary with only our head torches to guide us back.
After a quick stroll along the beach filled with danger sand (ask Chris), we crashed back to our tent with a moccachino just before the rain came down. A perfect day.

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.
