Split Point Lighthouse

Approximately 120km south-west of Melbourne lies the small coastal town of Aireys Inlet. The area is distinct from its nearby neighbours, Lorne and Anglesea, by retaining its village like atmosphere. The most well-known icon of the area is the Split Point Lighthouse. However, for those in the know, Aireys Inlet offers a range of nature based outdoor activities. It is truly a hidden gem.

Split Point Lighthouse

The most well-known attraction in Aireys Inlet.

Originally named Eagles Nest Point. Built in 1891, it is considered to be the most elegant lighthouse on the Australian coastline. Throughout the years a number of code systems were used to communicate with ships and guide them along the Shipwreck Coast. Even though it is unmanned, the lantern still operates sending out 4 flashes of light every 20 seconds and is visible for 30k at sea.

The lighthouse is easily accessible from the Great Ocean Road and is only a 15 minute walk from the motel along the Cliff Top Walk. Eco-Logic Education and Environment Services http://ecologic.net.au/activities/marine-activities/split-point-lighthouse-tour/ conduct daily tours of the Lighthouse. Visitors have the chance to climb the original staircase and enjoy the view from the balcony.
