Life Saving Victoria has chosen Warrnambool and Lorne as the locations for major events in 2020 and 2021, which will attract thousands to the Great Ocean Road region over multiple days.

Warrnambool Surf Life Saving Club (SLSC) will host the Victorian Junior State Championships over the March Labour Day long weekend (7-9 March 2020 and 6-8 March 2021) for the next two years, with the support of the Warrnambool City Council. For the first time, the event will be trialled over a three-day format.

Lorne SLSC will host the Victorian Youth/Senior State Championships (under 14 to open athletes) for the next two years, with the 2020 event taking place on 21-22nd March.

It’s anticipated that accommodation will be filling fast for these events, so visitors planning to be in the region during those times should book as early as possible.
