The Surf Coast includes the main towns of Torquay, Anglesea, Aireys Inlet and Lorne. Lorne is the final stop along the Surf Coast and one of the more well-known and well-established coastal settlements within the Great ocean Road region, and home of Australia’s largest ocean swim event – the iconic Pier to Pub.
The Walk the Plank ocean swim is a one of a kind ocean swim that should be on the bucket list of every experienced ocean swimmer. The swim kicks off at the Portsea Pier, where swimmers board a ferry and are taken 5km out to sea. They are then made to walk the plank (by a dressed up pirate no less) and swim back in, with the organisers making life a little easier by timing the swim with the incoming tide.Full Details
