If you are coming from Melbourne on Pier to Pub day then we strongly recommend taking the inland route via Deans Marsh Road from Winchelsea or Moriac. Do allow at least 2 and half hours as the roads become congested and travel times can be slow. Please be patient driving to and from Lorne. If you can, carpool with friends.
Parking in and around Lorne is difficult as there is limited space available for parking. To assist on Pier to Pub day, we have worked with the local community to make available the following parking locations (a $25 donation to the relevant local community organisation).
We also offer free parking and a courtesy shuttle bus from the Golf Club car park, which is convenient if you are coming the inland route. Make sure you park legally as parking inspectors are active over the weekend.
Parking is run by the Lorne Community Groups listed below. They set the prices for car-parks
The Carpark beside the Surf Club. This park is run by the Lorne Men's Shed community association.
Parking on the grassed area of the foreshore. Run by Lorne Men's Shed community association

We urge you to park legally in Lorne; parking Wardens will be active over the weekend.
