About
The Split Point Lighthouse is a must-see attraction and stands as a stunning sentinel on the Shipwreck Coast. Take a trip through maritime history and be amazed by this wild and dangerous coastline where hundreds of ships have crashed. It is still a vital working lighthouse for vessels navigating the treacherous waters of Bass Strait and still operates every night. Today it is famous for its role in the TV series ‘Round the Twist’ and you might spot a pod of dolphins or whales from the top balcony. The lighthouse is open daily for a visit, weather permitting. Come on in for a climb to the top and enjoy marvellous 360-degree views of this stunning coastline!

We visited this lighthouse via a private tour (see my review via my profile). Excellent example of an Australian lighthouse. Some interesting history behind it. Good lookout points.

I visited the inside of the lighthouse, learnt its history and took photographs inside and outside of the lighthouse. Would come back again.

There was one guide at the top of the lighthouse and one at the bottom. Both were very willing to answer questions and provide information about the lighthouse and area.

Absolute muat for lighthouse lovers. Didn't pay the $10 to go up but the view around is already spectacular enough. Didn't realise you could drive almost all the way up. Stumbled upon a nice little tea house on one side of the access road but not quite sure how to get there.

Not sure why the split point lighthouse becomes a company of tours. Anyway, we came here as first stop when landed from plane. Long drive from Melbourne toward Apollo bay. Stop by this lighthouse to have some pictures taken. A short walk from the carpark and mostly closed alrinf 3pm. Walk around to the surrounding park to have a great biew of the ocean. Nice contrasting the sky, ocean and park! Lovely place for you to spend 45mins to hike around.

Visited the lighthouse for a photo opportunity. Even though we didn’t tour the lighthouse, which only costs $10 anyway, we felt it was a must stop.
Lighthouse is stunning and has great views and photo opportunities. The foreshore is equally as stunning too!

What a fantastic experience to climb this fabulous lighthouse. It is not a Strenuous climb- you just need to pace yourself- but when you get to the top you are rewarded with the best views imaginable. Highly recommend this activity.

Lovely old lighthouse with lots of history. Price for entry was reasonable, although why we are paying to see things kept going with our tax dollars is beyond me. Lovely climb and views from the too and nice helpful staff.

If you like visiting lighthouses then this is one to not miss. Only about a 100 metre walk from the carpark at the bottom of the hill. When you get up there you are provided with spectacular views of the coast as well as a very well maintained lighthouse. Tours are available but it was closed when we arrived.
