The Rip Curl Pro is the longest running professional surfing contest in the world, having celebrated the 55th running of the event in 2016.



Erskine Falls are at the end of Erskine Falls Road 10km north west of Lorne. There is a viewing point above the falls and a walking track, steep in places, leads to the base of the falls. The falls cascade over one of the highest drops in the Otway's.



The Geelong Waterfront is one of Australia's most stunning waterfronts. Having started from humble beginnings when Geelong was founded as a port in 1836, the Waterfront has now attracted a series of prestigious awards.

This cosmopolitan and vibrant area is a hive of activity with restaurants and cafes, beautiful landscaped gardens, attractions and public art, all with amazing views of Corio bay. It also provides a full events calendar, tourism, education and accommodation services: Our historic carousel, Poppy Kettle playground and youth activities area is great for kids of all ages.
