Get a feel for Aireys Inlet

Aireys Inlet, a gorgeous coastal hamlet, gateway to the peaceful curves of the Great Ocean Road and the dramatic nature of the Great Otway National Park.  

Dominating the landscape is the Split Point Lighthouse, built in 1891. Connecting land and sea the 34-metre iconic tower and red cap are visible for miles. The operational lighthouse, which provides navigation to vessels travelling the waters of Bass Strait, is open to the public.  

Aireys Inlet provides visitors with a homegrown gateway to adventure with a beach on its doorstep, a river inlet meandering through its middle and the Otway’s hinterland in its backyard. Spectacular trails through the Great Otway National Park provide many opportunities for walking or riding, and the local creeks and beaches are great for surfing and fishing.  

The township boasts two shopping areas, known as the top and bottom shops; a general store, pharmacy, bookstore, art gallery, clothing and gift shops together with an abundance of cafés and restaurants.
