Positioned in the heart of Victoria's much-loved surf town, Erskine House in Lorne has been in continuous operation since the 1860s.

The history of the Erskine House

In 1864 three brothers, Thomas, Caleb and Lawrence Mountjoy settled in Louttit Bay. As word spread of the region's coastal beauty, the demand for accommodation grew. This prompted the Mountjoy brothers to build Lorne's first lodge; the Temperance Hotel, which eventually became Erskine House.

Now falling under the AccorHotels umbrella, Mantra Lorne, formally Erskine House, celebrates its longstanding rich history with a Garden Party open to all.

Mantra Lorne is a picture-postcard beachfront location, set on 12 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens. The property still maintains much of Erskine's heritage and tradition, giving reason to celebrate its 150th year of operation with a special Garden Party on Saturday 27 October.

The annual event, which this year marks a significant milestone for Lorne, begins at 2pm with the unveiling of the Plaque by the Councillor for Lorne Ward, Clive Goldsworthy and Mantra Group Regional General Manager, Doug Flavell.

The Garden Party will follow with an afternoon of family-friendly activities such as face painting, treasure hunts, beer tasting, yoga, tennis tournaments and more.

The Garden Party concludes with a dinner cooked by Chef Bevan Vahland, after which guests are encouraged to continue with their Great Ocean Road weekend getaway by staying overnight at Mantra Lorne.

Entry to the annual Garden Party at Mantra Lorne is free, with food and drinks available for sale throughout the day. A raffle and silent auction will take place to raise funds for the Australian Childhood Foundation; a partner of The AccorHotels Community Fund Australia, which is committed to building healthy families.
