Seaside Winter Program
The Aireys Inlet Tourism and Traders Association has combined with the Surf Coast Shire to come up with a program of Love Winter In Aireys events allowing visitors to enjoy local art, music, food, activities and entertainment all Winter long at this great little coastal village dominated by the imposing Split Point Lighthouse.
Aireys Inlet is a picturesque seaside village situated on the iconic Great Ocean Road.
With events ranging from 'First Friday's Open Mic' jam sessions at the Aireys Pub to Christmas in July at ONDA Foodhouse, a Wintersong Concert, Ladies Winter Retreat, Lighthouse tours, Kids Trivia and Pizza, Tastes of Japan Dinners and a Community Tennis Tournament there really is something for everyone this winter at Aireys Inlet.
Part of the notorious 'Shipwreck Coast' Aireys Inlet is dominated by the Split Point Lighthouse.
Tours of the lighthouse are an attraction for visitors to Aireys Inlet.
Situated on the Great Ocean Road between Anglesea and Lorne Aireys Inlet offers visitors beautiful beaches and spectacular cliffs together with a picturesque hinterland and easy access to the Great Otway National Park.
Aireys Inlet is well served by cafes, galleries and retail outlets.
The hottest spot in town - Rogue Wave Brewery at the Aireys Inlet Hotel.
Regular tours of the Split Point Lighthouse, built in 1891 and still an important player in ensuring the safety of shipping, provide stunning coastal views from high up in the lantern room and on the external balcony.
Love Winter in Aireys provides a long list of opportunities to enjoy Aireys Inlet and this spectacular part of the Victorian coastline. Be sure to visit the website for a full list of events.
After touring the town, beach and lighthouse precinct sit back and relax with a drink and snack at Willows Tea House - right next door to the lighthouse.
