Wye River in Cape Otway is a quite exposed river/reef break that has quite consistent surf. Spring and Summer provide the optimum conditions. The best wind direction is from the north northwest. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the south southeast. The beach breaks favour rights as well as a right hand reef break.. Best around high tide when the tide is rising. Sometimes crowded. Beware of crowds and rocks.
