Lorne Pier

The original pier dated back to 1879 but over the years’ time and the sea had taken its toll. In 2006 construction started to build a new pier with modern facilities for both the fisherman and their fishing boats.

Being the same length and width of the old pier, Lorne’s new pier opened in March of 2007 and cost five million dollars to construct. The end of the pier offers a wider section and lower platform which are very popular for the dozens of fishermen who fish from the pier each day.
