About the Walk
This is a circuit walk, starting along the beach west of Moggs Creek, then looping inland, via Moggs Creek picnic ground, Distillery Creek walking track, Gentle Annie track and Lialeeta Rd, back to the beach.
The Walk in Detail
From the car park walk back to Moggs Creek mouth and then walk west along the beach for 500m. Leave the beach via the second walkway and cross the road to a narrow track immediately opposite. Continue west to a track junction, take the left branch and continue on to the Ocean View Lookout.
From the lookout follow the signposted track to Moggs Creek Picnic Ground. Leave the picnic area using the access road, then turn left onto the signposted Distillery Creek Walking Track. Follow this for 1.5 km across Moggs Creek and uphill to reach Gentle Annie Track.
Turn right and follow Gentle Annie Track for 1 km to a junction. Take the left branch eastward along a fence line to Old Coach Rd, turn right and travel 200m. Then turn left and go to the ridge top. Almost immediately on your left you will find a track descending through the bush to meet Lialeeta Rd. The road is curved at this point.
Go right and continue to the Great Ocean Rd. Cross to the Fairhaven Surf Life Saving Club and walk west along the beach to return to Moggs Creek.
Getting ThereDrive 4 km west from Aireys inlet. Cross the bridge over Moggs Creek and park off the road. A larger car park can be found 700m west if this one is full.
Depending on high tide times, it may be necessary to start the walk at Lialeeta Rd and go in reverse.
