Aireys Inlet is a beautiful beach town only a couple of hours out of the city. It is a really nice drive and to get there you begin the very start of the Great Ocean Road along the board of the sea and land. Would recommend coming here on a sunny day because it makes the view all the more picturesque. Once you arrive in Aireys Inlet there a some lovely little cafes and the whole town is just chiming with a community spirit. It is a lot quiter than the other beach towns but definitely worth the stop. The beach is beautiful but always be careful of the water if you are not the greatest swimmer or if you haven't swam in Australian waters. The water can be very cold to, so would recommend a wet suit if you wanted to swim for a long time. If not, it is also a great spot just to have some lunch and be by the water
