Highly-anticipated Lorne Sculpture Biennale will see a range of established and emerging sculptors present their works along the coastal sculpture trail from March 12 – April 3.

In addition to outstanding displays of art, the sculpture trail will also host live sculpturescape and performances over the four weekends, which are certain to entertain and entice viewers.

There will be a variety of sculptures dotted along the Lorne Sculpture Trail.

36 sculptors have been selected to be a part of the sculpture trail, which will extend from the Lorne Pier to Erskine River.

Eat Local Month has been developed to celebrate and explore the local food industry along the Surf Coast, with many Lorne-based foodies, farmers, and businesses to be involved in a series of events.

Events will range from secret supper clubs and crop mobs, to festivals and crowd-farmed feasts which all pay homage to those that grow, bake and craft with the delicious produce the Surf Coast has to offer.

The GMHBA Great Ocean Road Marathon May 14-15 offers something for all fitness levels from 1.5km run to the 23km half marathon.

The Marathon attracts athletes from around the world who are eager to experience the beautiful panoramic views of the southern ocean.


The GMHBA Great Ocean Road Marathon is one of the more beautiful tracks to date.
