We are excited to offer again in 2021 a scenic Lorne Hotel Great Ocean Road Walk on Sunday 16 May. The Walk allows participants the opportunity to walk along the spectacular Great Ocean Road, free from traffic. Take in the picturesque nature along this dramatic coast line at your own pace, enjoying the breathtaking views on offer.
The Lorne Hotel Great Ocean Road Walk will allow walkers of all ages and fitness levels to explore the natural beauty of the windswept coast of the Southern Ocean, with options to complete a 5km or 10km loop along the Great Ocean Road. Two turn-around points along the course will allow walkers to determine which distance they choose to complete. The Lorne Hotel Great Ocean Road Walk is the perfect activity for those travelling down the Great Ocean Road to support runners participating in other events across the weekend.
