Pet Friendly Walks and Beaches

A holiday destination for the whole family… including pets

Lorne Township Walks

Did you know Lorne welcomes all family members on holidays? Your little furry friends are welcome on numerous walking tracks all-year-round from beach walks, forest walks and foreshore strolls.

Popular pet friendly walking tracks include North Lorne Beach, Shelly Beach and the Lorne Foreshore.

Please note, over peak visitor periods including summer and the Easter weekend, timeshare restrictions operate on some popular beaches that are often crowded during the day. This means dogs aren’t allowed in certain areas from 9am – 7pm.
