Fishing Frenzy with Family Fish & Feed at Lorne!
Hello there! Cedric the Cumberland Bear coming to you from the sunny shores of Lorne's beach on this PERFECT Lorne day. Oh My Goodness!! It is just superb down here on the coast...you should come down and join us!! We have some great mid-week rates including last minute specials and also our fabulous value Stay Pay special - stay for two nights and get the third night free!! Jump to it!
I might make the most of this lovely day and throw in a line to get in some practice for the Family, Fish & Feed event on in Lorne this weekend! As a part of this year's Melbourne Food and Wine Festival head on down to the Lorne Aquatic & Angler's Club at the Lorne Pier this Saturday March 17. Choose from a market place of seafood with local offerings of culinary delights being cooked up on the spot! Enjoy a veritable feast of fish and chips prepared by Sam Petrovski from The Lorne Hotel; paella from Ba Ba Lu Bar & Restaurant and a fabulous mussel dish from the Lorne Beach Pavilion...dine on these delicious dishes right beside the ocean and enjoy a glass of something delightful from one of our local wineries including Wolseley Wines and Otway Estate who will be there with their wares on the day.
I will have worked up an appetite during the fishing competition, also running as part of the event! I already have my fishing licence, but if you need to get one, you can purchase a licence from the Lorne Visitor Information Centre (they'll be available to buy after 9am on the day of the competition) or at the Aquatic & Angler's Club after 8am. They're only $6, what a bargain for hours of fishing fun!! So sort your licence and head for the compeition - you can throw your line in offshore or onshore...wherever you think you'll nab the biggest catch! Just make sure you've landed your fish in time to get it weighed before the midday cut-off. Judging criteria includes location of the catch (onshore or offshore), weight and length.
For more information on the event and what's happening in and around Lorne jump across to Love Lorne for lots of Lorne goodness!
See you here in LOVELY LORNE!
