Lorne walks cover a great variety of distances and environments. There are more than 70 bush and coastal walks in the Surf Coast region. Some are only short but, in 10 minutes or so, they can take you to a spectacular coastal lookout, waterfall or forest.

There are also walks of several hours along windswept beaches, through heathland and forest.

Many of the walks in this area feature waterfalls and lookouts over the rugged coastline. There are waterfalls of all shapes and sizes, and dramatic cliffs and peaceful pools along the river valleys, as well as fascinating
geological features like the Canyon. There are short nature trails, walks to ocean lookouts and along old timber tramways, and long, strenuous walks through rocky gullies filled with tree
