Point Grey is a popular precinct located to the south of the Lorne town centre and comprises of a mix of community, recreational and commercial activities, including the pier, restaurant, Aquatic Club, boat launching, fishing, barbeques and recreational areas. The precinct connects to the centre of Lorne by a walking track along the foreshore.
An integral part of the Lorne community, it is highly valued and used by locals, holiday makers and day visitors. The Point Grey Precinct also contains significant Indigenous (e.g. shell midden) and non-Indigenous (e.g. tram way track, fragment of old pier) cultural heritage values.
A picturesque location for a picnic, relaxation or a soothing stroll, Point Grey offers a little retreat from the main Lorne foreshore.

LorneCare works along the foreshore from North Lorne to the St George River and Queens Park. The team of dedicated volunteers also conduct an annual Lorne foreshore clean up on New Year’s Day.
