Exploring Moggs Creek and its Environs

Moggs Creek is situated not far from Aireys Inlet along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria. Indeed, there are many smaller places all along this coastline and, as such, plenty of opportunity to do some great exploring. Holiday accommodation in Moggs Creek is extremely easy to come by and the style all depends on the visitor and what they need.

As with all holiday makers, particularly those that fly in from the UK and other international destinations, they need to be at the heart of the action to cut down on traveling times etc. By booking into a place like Moggs Creek, visitors get that lovely ‘at home’ feeling while being free to explore the vastness that is this small corner of Australia.

Things to See and Do

Literally everyone is catered for along the Great Ocean Road and there is enough to keep everyone busy for an entire lifetime. There are lighthouses and discovery trails, marine sanctuaries and historical buildings and all within easy reach of Great Otway National Park. Beaches and creeks are not far away so whether it is fishing, swimming, snorkeling, horse riding or trekking that the family wants to do, it is all right here within easy reach from a Moggs Creek holiday rental.

Starting with the beach life, Fairhaven and Anglesea beaches are patrolled areas for swimmers who may get into some difficulty with the rip tides. There are great rock pools to explore and sandy coves for a cool barbecue as well as organized water trips for scuba diving.

Based at Split Point Lighthouse is Eagle Rock Marine Park. This is a huge seventeen hectares of water area that is extremely popular with anyone who can swim or snorkel.

The Great Ocean Road runs right along the coastline and visitors to Moggs Creek have the opportunity to explore, probably by car, for much of its length. On one side they get to see breathtaking views of the ocean while on the other side stands a towering rain forest. For those who love to swim, try a trip to Queenscliff for a dip with dolphins and seals or just laze next to the water.

Around Otway, expect to have some unexpected meetings with wild koalas, kangaroos and, for kids who love to explore, an encounter with glow worms too! The shy platypus has also been spotted on Lake Elizabeth early in the morning or at dusk.

Further afield from Moggs Creek, expect to find some National Trust properties that give visitors the opportunity to see life as it used to be. Along with this opportunity, try out the historic sites like Triplet Falls which has an old mill on site. Around this area try visiting the old steam engines which have been preserved by the Bellarine Railway Company. They are still operating around holiday times and at weekends and kids just love to ride these trains and feel the power of steam.

Accommodation

There is a vast variety of accommodation in Moggs Creek and all along the Great Ocean Road. For families, booking a serviced apartment with a shared pool is a good option for those down days when people have to rest. Rental holiday homes are also available along with luxury apartments or other forms of high class accommodation. It really is all down to budget and needs but, even if this is a camping trip, there are parks that take backpackers and caravans for hire as well.

Moggs Creek Climate

It never really gets cold in this part of the world but it can get a little chilled in their winter season which runs from about June to August. The driest and warmest times are between December and February so one can say that it is the exact opposite to the seasons in the UK.

Getting There

The influx of national carriers into the UK means that ticket prices to Australia have come well within reach of the average British family these days. Flights are out of Heathrow and they stop at Melbourne or Victoria for visitors to Moggs Creek. It is a good idea to book accommodation and flight packages, along with tourist attraction tickets and/or tours from home because these often attract some very good discounts. Also book transfers or car hire from home too to save money in the long run.

This property is easy to live in, no fuss and with gorgeous views and abundant birdlife visiting. The cockatoos are very cheeky! Maureen was really helpful and the house has everything you need.
