Anglesea Golf Course, Aireys Inlet Lighthouse, Memorial Arch

Victoria’s Surf Coast draws thousands of visitors every year – for its pounding waves, its tranquil calm and its spectacular beauty.

Starting the tour

Anglesea, Victoria

Section 1:
Directions:

Head west on Great Ocean Rd and turn right at McMillan St (a little after you see the Noble Street turn off). Continue as it becomes McMahon Ave. Turn right at Par St, right onto Birdie St and left at Fairway Dr. Finally, take a left at Niblick St where you’ll see the golf course.

Stopover:

Park up at the club house and get yourself down to the golf course where you have a very high chance of seeing one of the 1000 resident kangaroos! Who needs to go to the zoo!

Section 2:
Directions:

Head northwest on Niblick St, back towards Fairway Dr. Turn right at Fairway Dr. Right at Birdie Street and left at Par St. Then left at McMahon Ave. Follow it as it veers south to stay on McMahon Ave. Then right at Sparrow Ave. Turn left at Harvey St and right at Melba Parade. Turn right at Great Ocean Rd! Continue on the Great Ocean Road until you reach the small town on Aireys Inlet, there, follow your nose to the lighthouse.

Stopover:

If you want to top up your photo selection here’s a perfect opportunity! The Aireys Inlet Lighthouse, or the White lady as she is known by the locals, has spectacular views around the coast. There’s a cliff top walk which doesn’t take long. The stunning gold beach and the deep blue ocean may keep you there a while though. And remember that programme that you used to watch called ‘Around the Twist’? That was filmed at this very lighthouse!

Section 3:
Directions:

Once you’re done, head back to the Great Ocean Road and continue westwards and, after some time, you will drive under the Memorial Arch.

Stopover:

This arch and sculpture are a tribute those who built the Great Ocean Road. During the Great Depression of the 1930s many men were left unemployed so the government employed them to work as a team and build the Great Ocean Road! Many died doing the dangerous and heavy work, but their legacy is the incredibly beautiful road that you’ve driven today, which draws visitors from around the country and the world.
