Located on the Great Ocean Road, Victoria, Lorne Point is an excellent rocky reef/point set up that can serve up some of the best and longest waves on the coast. The waves here are no joke in terms of power and difficulty, but on its day Lorne Point can serve up long walls for any manoeuvre that you can think of, as well as sections that offer opportunities for barrels. The wave is usually sectiony, but on a big swell on the right day the whole point will line up and deliver some amazing waves.
