About Us

Club Lorne Outdoor Education Camp is an exiting new concept in group accommodation and school camps.

We operate from the newly constructed Lorne Surf Life Saving club located on the Lorne Foreshore Reserve. We also enjoy stunning views of pristine Loutit Bay with Airleys Inlet Lighthouse in the distance and only a short walk to Lorne Pier.

Special interest groups, primary, secondary and tertiary year level groups can now enjoy the unique experience of a camp where the breaking waves create a breathtaking backdrop by day and a soothing atmosphere to fall asleep to by night.

Camp Director Phil Sutton has 20+ years experience as a PE/Outdoor Education teacher and has been a member of Lorne S.L.S.C for 30 years. Qualifications include B-ED PE/Outdoor Ed, Surf Bronze Instructors, Advanced Lifeguard Certificate, Advanced Resuscitation Certificate, Patrol Captain, I.R.B Captain, Wilderness 1st Aid Certificate, Level 2 Climbing instructors and Basic Paddling Skills Instructors.

Groups can be assured of an educational, challenging, fun and rewarding experience.

This unique location plays host to the iconic "Pier to Pub" swim each year. In February 2006 Lorne Surf Club was chosen as host club to the World Lifesaving Championships in which thousands of competitors from 38 countries came to Lorne to participate.

The Otways National Park directly behind Lorne has a diverse Flora and Fauna including lush rainforest, towering eucalypts and spectacular waterfalls. Many bushwalks can be conducted following original logging tracks from the early 1900's.
