The Great Ocean Road along Victoria's western coastline is world renowned for its beauty and Lorne is often described as the jewell of this Surf Coast. Located on the edge of beautiful Loutit Bay, the town nestles between the blue ocean and the Otway National Park. Lorne has been a popular holiday spot since Victorian times when the journey from Melbourne would take several days, but today, with the new Geelong by-pass, the journey can be made in less than 2 hours.

Lorne has something to offer the whole family:-

- beautiful, safe, patrolled, family friendly beaches

- magnificent National Parks with waterfalls, bush walks,

- 4-wheel drive trails, Ranger excursions

- surfing, wind-surfing, para-gliding, fishing, golf

- swimming pool, trampolines, skate park, paddle boats

- adventure playground and BBQ's on the foreshore

- cinema

- cafes, restaurants, bars, alfresco dining

- spa and beauty salon at the Mantra Resort

- boutiques, giftshops, antiques

- galleries, Lorne Historical Society Museum

- Ranger supervised Bush & Beach excursions


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.

Visit the recently constructed Otway Fly rainforest walk.

Go whale watching. Whales are often sighted along the

Great Ocean Road, particularly during the winter months

when they are migrating and when mothers have given

birth to calves.

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 15, for details of these excursions and many

more ideas on what to see and do around Lorne.

Ideal for the two of us

  • 4 of 5

We needed to get away from home for a few days and this beach hut proved to be an ideal solution mid week, early autumn in Lorne. Handy to everything in town, easy to find. Inside it was just right for two adults. The great advantage is having everything at hand including linen. Like anywhere you can find issues with accom but overall this simple, clean and airy beach hut was ideal for a no fuss stay. We intend to stay again sometime in the near future.

Great little spot to stay . .

  • 4 of 5

My partner and I stayed at Beach Box 15 over the Queen’s Birthday weekend. And we thoroughly enjoyed it! It’s a nice and cozy place for two. The kitchen and lounge area isn’t very comfy. Upstairs has all you need in terms of bedroom and bathroom. And it’s very close to Lorne’s Main Street and beach. We had a wonderful stay here and would certainly do so again. Thank you.

Awesome views and location

  • 4 of 5

Beachbox 15 was fantastic. We love the location and the views from this beachbox. They are great little apartments, we just love them. This particular beachbox was set up well. The only negative I would have to say and its nothing to stop anyone from staying there is that I would ask that the cupboards and drawers are cleaned. The shelves where a bit dirty which made me feel like I had to wash everything before I used it and the cutlery was not clean so i emptied the whole drawer and re-washed everything. The sofa bed was terrible I have to say, there is no way 1 adult could sleep on this it was awful. Alright for a child only.

Overall though it was fantastic.

Owner's Response: Dear Sharon, I am so pleased you liked Beachbox 15, they are great fun to stay in. Sorry you found the kitchen cupboards could do with a clean, it is something I ask my cleaners to check on but sometimes they forget. I have booked a full spring-clean for the end of the month. This is the first time I have had negative remarks regarding the sofa-bed and I shall certainly check it out. Regards. Joanna
