Take the Cape Otway Lightstation turn off from the Great Ocean Road. Follow this to the very end (12.3 km). During normal
opening times (roughly 9a.m. to 5p.m.) there is a kiosk and toilet facilities available. The Cemetery itself is not within the
Lightstation grounds (so there is no entry fee applicable). There is a grassed area that is an extension of the kiosk carpark and
the path to the Cemetery is at the end of this section.
The path is steep in parts and it is about a 1km. walk to the Cemetery (10 - 20 mins depending upon your pace). It is not suitable for people who have any difficulty with their mobility. Climb to the lookout and down again and then turn right at the "T" intersection in the track. The Cemetery is well maintained.
