Welcome to Lorne Surf Life Saving Club

We’re famous for hosting the largest ocean swim in the world, the iconic Powercor Lorne Pier to Pub ocean water swim and Powercor Lorne Mountain to Surf Run in January each year.  Our Club, established in 1947, is located in the beautiful coastal town of Lorne overlooking Loutitt Bay on Victoria’s scenic Great Ocean Road.  The Club is steeped in a proud history and tradition of surf lifesaving education, competition and patrolling through the wonderful community spirit of its volunteer members.  You are always welcome to join as a member or just visit our Club.  The upstairs bar and restaurant is open for breakfast, coffee, lunch, dinner and drinks most of the Summer holiday season.
