Hike Summary

The Aireys Eastern View hike commences at Memorial Arch, approximately 2.5km west of Moggs Creek. The route is mostly along old coal mine and forest trails. Head north along Golf Links Road, turning west onto Coal Mine Track after approximately 350m. This track follows a series of spurs as it winds its way north west towards a ridge line where you will intersect with Moggs Creek Track. Turn right at this junction and follow Moggs Creek track south west towards Moggs Creek.

After 3km you will reach the junction of Moggs Creek Link Track. Turn left at this point and follow the trailto Moggs Creek (that actual creek, not the town). After exploring the creek near Tallawalla retrace your steps a short approximately 1km until you locate Ocean View track on your left. Follow this in a southerly direction towards Moggs creek. There is a short off-trail section, taking you to the beach, after you reach Moggs Creek Track

About the Memorial Arch

The Arch commemorates the construction of the road and symbolizes the sacrifice made by so many in the First World War. It stands astride the largest enduring war memorial in the world, The Great Ocean Road, a living memorial to our forefathers.

About the region

Great Otway National Park stretches from Torquay, along the world-famous Great Ocean Road and up through the Otways hinterland. Discover windswept coastlines and breathtaking waterfalls in tall mountain forests, walk the iconic Great Ocean Walk, immerse yourself in the Otway Lightstation's history, or surf some of the best breaks in Australia. Enjoy the great outdoors and explore the wonders of the Great Otway National Park. Great Otway National Park is in southern Victoria, Australia. It covers rugged coastland, beaches and the mountains of the Otway Ranges. Waterfalls dot the park, including the 3 cascades of Triplet Falls. Boardwalks lead through temperate rainforest at Maits Rest. The 1848 Cape Otway Lightstation perches on cliffs overlooking Bass Strait. Great Ocean Walk leads through the park to the Twelve Apostles rock formations.

Getting there

Drive to Aireys Inlet and on through Moggs Creek for a further 2 to 3 kilometres to Memorial Arch where it crosses the road. Cars can be parked on the ocean side of the Great Ocean road.
