Aireys Inlet

About Aireys Inlet


Aireys Inlet is nestled between the iconic coastal features of Fairhaven Beach and Urquharts Bluff.  Characterised by Split Point Lighthouse, the only lighthouse visible from the Great Ocean Road, and traversed by the Painkalac estuary, Aireys Inlet is in Surf Coast Shire. 

Aireys Inlet Tourism and Traders Association represents the interests of the local visitor economy and has a commercial partnership with Great Ocean Road Regional Tourism. 

The Aireys Inlet Brand

We are dedicated to nourishment of the body, mind and soul. Let out the worries of the everyday and let in the calming flow of the ‘ocean meets bush’ lifestyle. We are a place where your mind is nourished by nature and your body is nourished by fresh locally made cuisine, all shared by generous people. 

Nature lights the way in Aireys Inlet and truly connecting with it will replenish the souls of those who visit.
