Bushwalks
Lorne is known as the jewel in the crown in terms of the quality and diversity of the bushwalks in the Great Otway National Park. Known as the area where the "Mountains Meet the Sea" walks take in many features such as water falls, caves, lush rainforest rich in ferns, many of these walks are conducted along original logging tracks from the early 1900's.

Overnight Bushwalks
This walk is conducted for the beginner level: Start at Sheoak River mouth, Takes in Sheoak Falls, Swallows Cave, lunch at Sheoak Picnic Ground. Continue past Won Wondah falls, the Canyon, then Phantom Falls and down to the Allenvale Sawmill campsite for overnight camp. Next morning, follow George River track to the Fireman's track then back to Club Lorne before lunch and finish. We provide; tents, backpacks, japara jackets, and sleeping mats for up to 25 students.
