Pub
$$
“We love the Salt lager the best - great pub food and an old boat in the sandpit for a kids playground, great family atmosphere!”

Greek Restaurant
$$
“Absolute classic Greek Eat - up there with the best! Delicious with great sunny atmosphere. This whitewashed restaurant has a broad verandah on two sides affording glimpses of the ocean in the background. It becomes prime territory when the sun is shining. There's a green lawn that's perfect for children to stretch their legs (and on that note there's a kids' menu, too). Inside has the pleasant, modern feel of an airy, timber-hued bistro with wainscoting augmented by a colour-block paint scheme that references the Mediterranean by way of Mondrian. My ideal A La Grecque experience is a bottle of wine with some share plates of calamari, salt codd croquettes and some taramasalata preceded with a morning at the beach ... then home for a nap!”

Lighthouse
“The most iconic landmark of the Aireys Inlet and Fairhaven area has to be the Split Point Lighthouse. Stunning views and loads of history, including a starring role in the "Round the Twist" TV series in the 90s. You can walk around the lighthouse and do the coastal walks at no cost, or there are tours of the lighthouse at a cost from the tour vendor: splitpointlighthouse.com.au”

The coffee is OK and they do milkshakes. its good option if you have kids you can ether head behind the shop to the Painkalac Creek and eat by the riverbank or head over the Great Ocean Road to the kids park and skate park.”
