Split Point Lighthouse Aireys Inlet

What you can expect

Any Aussie adult who went to school in the 1990's will have been exposed to Australian TV show "Round the Twist" on a day when sports class was cancelled due to rain, and Airey's Inlet's Split Point Lighthouse will thus immediately bring some nostalgic feelings to the forefront haven been the locale where the show was based. The lighthouse is in excellent condition and sits on a wonderful spot along the Great Ocean Road where multiple lookout points grant excellent views out to the surrounding ocean, and there are plenty of little walking trails nearby that provide alternate viewpoints or spots for a picnic. It's easily accessible from the main Great Ocean Road, too, without requiring a large diversion like some other key highlights during the drive. The lighthouse can also be explored inside via a paid guided tour that takes place on the hour and provides further insight while granting even more exceptional views from the top, and from which whales can be spotted during their annual migratory period. Split Point Lighthouse also has a lovely little cafe for some light refreshment, making it an ideal stop-off spot during your journey along the Great Ocean Road before pressing further onwards.
