Wye River in Cape Otway is a fairly exposed river/reef break that has reasonably consistent surf. Spring and Summer provide the best conditions. Works best in offshore winds from the north northwest. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the south southeast. Waves at the beach tend to peel to the right and there is right hand reef break too. Best around high tide when the tide is rising. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Beware of crowds and rocks.
