Information

Split Point Lighthouse is located in Aireys Inlet, a small town on the Great Ocean Road, Victoria, Australia. It was originally called Eagles Nest Point.

The lighthouse was constructed in 1891. For its first 27 years of operation in it was staffed, but was converted to automatic operation in 1919 using acetylene gas to provide the illumination and then further upgraded to electric operation in 1972. The Split Point lighthouse structure is 34 metres tall and stands 66 metres above sea level. The original stables and work room are now a café.

If you have ever wanted to explore a fully functioning lighthouse that is still in operation then Split Point Lighthouse could provide that opportunity. You can learn about when it was built, how it operates, the lighthouse keepers and their families, the importance of the environment around Aireys Inlet and its social, cultural and maritime history. The view from the top provides a 360 degree vistas of the beautiful coast line!
