Eagle Rock is a stack of the coast from the Aireys Inlet Reserve at the eastern end of the Great Ocean Road near to Fairhaven in Victoria, southern Australia. It forms the focus of the Eagle Rock Marine Reserve and sanctuary. The rock is formed of a tall volcanic stack topped by limestone and can be seen for several miles along the coast. The reserve is rich in fish life and a popular diving and snorkeling site, though swimmers must be aware of potential rip tides.
Standing on the headland overlooking Eagle Rock, and visible in this picture, is Split Point Lighthouse, built in 1891 and the first the lighthouse sighted by ships rounding the Cape Otway on their way to Melbourne. To the west of Eagle Rock Marine Reserve is Aireys Inlet Beach.
