Overview

Aireys Inlet

Soak up the seaside history, stunning natural attractions and creative atmosphere in Aireys Inlet, a hidden gem holiday destination along the Great Ocean Road.

Stories of the sea

Let the looming Split Point Lighthouse be your guide as you wander around Aireys Inlet. Built in 1891 and perched on the cliffs 70 metres above sea level, the lighthouse is the subject of local ghost stories and maritime legends. 

Walk along surrounding cliff top tracks to see rocky reefs, rock pools and sheltered coves (and keep your eye out for whales in season), or head off to Anglesea by foot.

Indoors and out

From the Festival of Words for the budding writers to the Open Mic Music Festival for those with a musical ear, there's plenty to keep travellers entertained and amused. So check your calendar before you leave to make the most of this flourishing live music and literary hub. Kick off an evening with a Greek feast at the renowned A La Grecque, or round off a night at the local Aireys pub.

More of an outdoor type? Pencil in time for mountain biking, canoeing and fishing, or saddle up for a race along the beach on horseback. Walk or cycle along forest trails and stop for lunch at any number of scenic seaside locations. Looking for a challenge? Set out on the Surf Coast Walk and discover the facinating surf culture, abundant native wildlife and coastal forests of leafy green eucalypts.

On the sand

Travel a few kilometres west to the main surf beach of Fairhaven for a day in the water. Bust out the surfboard, enjoy a swim in the waves or just splash around with the kids. Venture into the secluded coves of Sandy Gully and Step Beach and ramble through the rock pools, or try a spot of snorkelling. Recharge with a bite to eat at the local surf club and watch the waves roll in.
