    We visited this lighthouse via a private tour (see my review via my profile). Excellent example of an Australian lighthouse. Some interesting history behind it. Good lookout points.

    If you are looking for respite from the wind, change of pace form beach... have s picnic here and head off up to a scenic spot looking out over the ocean. Good track for competent walkers but only 2 km up to the view return on a loop.

    Or take the nature trail, no more than 2 km You cross bridges over Moggs Creek walking through a valley The creek doesn’t flow in summer, in winter you get more birdsong and the sounds of bubbling brooks

    If you want waterfalls, head to Lorne. Seek out the information centre on the left after you cross the bridge going into Lorne

    All these walks are great after rain, muddy sometimes but ihhh the Eucalyptus scent

    Lovely beach. If you are not a surfer or know anything about rips, DO NOT SWIM HERE. Cool your feet by all means, otherwise stay out of the water. There are patrolled beaches at nearby Anglesea, Pt Roadknight or Fairbanks. Swim between the flags.

    My wife and I walked to this place, after visiting the Light House, where we had parked our car. This place is very scenic and is definitely worth visiting.

    We could see it from the lookout near the Light House. The walking track itself is interesting.

    The tide was out, so we could walk around a large expanse of beach area.

    As I stopped at the Allen Noble Sanctuary on the way to the lighthouse, this remarkable sculpture sits unnassumingly beside a nice little picnic spot

    This quaint little park has a lot to offer the tourist to the Surf Coast area. There are picnic tables and a kids playground. There is also a historical representation of an old colonial era bark hut that provides a glimpse into how the early settlers to the area lived.

    We go there every day we are at Aireys Inlet on our walk. Lovely looking at the bird life, black swans and babies in spring. Eels in the water which you can see.

    Far from the madding crowd - to sit, reflect, appreciate & meditate or just take a welcome break. Sunset, sunrise or anytime... Thanks to the second reviewer who has given the location!
