Lorne pier

The Lorne pier was rebuilt a few years back, and it is as popular as ever, particularly with fishermen.
Stub of the old pier

When the  pier was rebuilt, the stub of the old pier was retained.  Some displays have been erected giving some of its history.

Playground equipment built from timbers from old pier

The old pier lives on in another way, too.  The playground in town incorporates a structure built from timber taken from the former pier, and even includes a replica of one of the fishing boats that used to be winched up and stored on the pier.
