If you’re inspired by the surfing lifestyle, drop into this cool vintage store where you can stock up on beach-themed gifts and homewares sourced from across the globe. One of the owners, Murray Walding, is a bit of poster guru, so there’s always something new for the walls, from vintage surf posters to 1960s movie fliers. And if you find yourself falling in love with Lorne, check out the range of black-and-white photographs taken by the beach and surrounds in the sixties. Just look for the beaded curtains painted with Kombis and palm trees and you know you’ve arrived.
Once you hit the seaside village of Lorne, you really feel as though you’re on the Great Ocean Road journey. A popular spot with Melbourne holiday-makers, it’s got a bustling main street, a beautiful stretch of beachfront lawn for picnics and a pier popular for fishing.
