Destination - Lorne

Lorne, VIC

School leavers are choosing Lorne, located on the scenic Great Ocean Road, to celebrate Schoolies because of its relaxed and low-key atmosphere.

The picturesque resort town of Lorne is one of Victoria's most popular beach tourist destinations where you can simply choose to chill out with a barbeque by the beach and take in the amazing surroundings.

Lorne offers trendy cafes, restaurants, boutique shops, ancient rainforests, waterfalls and other amazing natural wonders along with a whole host of activities.

Celebrating on the Surf Coast is all about relaxing and having a great break from the stresses of VCE! Why not learn to surf at Australia's home of surfing? There are lots of great adventure activities waiting for you.

The School Leavers Working Group (SWG) worked all year round in 2014 to provide a safer environment for all School Leavers and the community during the end of year celebrations. They will be proposing a similar registration to all Year 12 School Leavers attending Schoolies on the Surf Coast for Schoolies 2015.

2014 Registration included:

  • Official Wristband

  • Access to shuttle buses

  • Access to venues that have “Schoolies “ only nights (*note there may be an additional surcharge for this)

  • Support from youth workers

  • Free barbecues

  • Free water

  • Great discounts on surf wear and activities from local businesses

  • Welcome pack information

 More information about online registration will be provided closer to the time.

Explore the Foreshore Trail and Surf Coast Walk, pass the days away with surfing lessons on some of Australia's best breaks, hire a canoe or bike or get back to nature and visit the amazing Erskine Falls.

Schoolies accommodation at Lorne includes properties offering a wide range of facilities including bowling greens, tennis courts, putting greens, numerous barbeque areas and restaurants and bars. And if you feel the need for a little pampering some even offer a Day Spa.
