Cape Otway Lighthouse (built 1848) is the oldest surviving lighthouse on mainland Australia. Climb to the top of Cape Otway Lightstation and enjoy amazing views above the ocean. The grounds are open for exploration daily and entry fees apply. More info www.lightstation.com
A perfect place to view the great Southern Ocean and learn about the history of the area.
A beautiful spot to experience and appreciate the scale and grandeur of the rugged Victorian coastline. Incredible views of the ocean, cliffs, and natural bush along the Cape.
Excellent source of local knowledge, including the local indigenous heritage and life. Highly recommend.

“Walk through magnificent mountain ash forests with large myrtle beech, blackwood and thick ferns to arrive at the spectacle of the Beauchamp Falls crashing over a ledge into a large pool. One of several waterfalls in the Great Otway National Park, this 20-metre waterfall rewards a somewhat strenuous walk. To get to the falls, take the walking path from the picnic area, located off the Aire Valley Road from Beech Forest Road. The three-kilometre path is an hour's walk return, and requires reasonable fitness. The descent to the falls leads to a viewing platform (there is no access to the falls). The path back is steep and has steps that can be slippery when wet.”

“Just past Apollo Bay, off the world famous Great Ocean Road, Marengo Reefs Marine Sanctuary protects 12ha of ocean waters. About 150m offshore, this sanctuary protects a reef system known as Little Henty Reef. Two sections of the reef, the inner and outer reef, are usually exposed and separated by a narrow channel known as 'The Gap'. Composed of sandstone they support wonderful intertidal and subtidal reefs which are packed with sea life. Visitors exploring the intertidal reef may come across many invertebrates including sea snails, tubeworms and abalone. In slightly deeper waters there are beautiful seaweed gardens.”
