Overview

Anglesea

From towering cliffs and sprawling white beaches to abundant flora, native wildlife and coastal walking trails, Anglesea is a celebration of life by the water. Located just ten minutes west of Torquay on the Great Ocean Road, this quaint surf town is the perfect spot for all your natural adventures.

Surf, sun and kangaroos

Play in the sun on Anglesea's main beach, a wide sandy expanse beside the Anglesea River, which is perfect for swimming, surfing, or simply relaxing. On holiday with the kids? Paddle in protected waters at nearby Point Roadknight beach.

Work on your handicap and get close to nature at the same time with a memorable round of golf alongside kangaroos in the natural bush setting of Anglesea Golf Club.

Two feet and two wheels

Choose a section of the 44-kilometre Surf Coast Walk and get your heart pumping. Take the short walk along the Anglesea riverbanks or explore Anglesea Heath and witness the ochre cliffs contrasted against the vivid blue ocean. Keep an eye out for local kangaroos, wallabies,  spring wildflowers and colourful orchids as you go.

For those in search of a real challenge, test your stamina on the new Surf Coast Century course, a 100-kilometre running trail taking in wild beaches, towering cliff and remote wilderness.

Bring your mountain bike and get into gear at the four cross track at Anglesea Bike Park before exploring the Great Otway National Park on tracks around Eumeralla and on named tracks through the park (seasonal closures apply).

Riverside adventures

Visit on the weekend and follow the buzz to the riverbank for the vibrant Sunday morning market with its eclectic array of stalls. Wander along the boardwalk to find a picnic spot or hire a canoe and paddle around the channels at your own pace. For a break from the kids, let them run free in the adventure playground at Coogorah Park.

Getting creative

Get to the heart of Anglesea's art community by setting out along the Anglesea Art Walk, a 2.5-kilometre stroll through Anglesea taking in six mosaic art pieces, then see how the sea air and outdoor life inspires local artists at workshops and galleries.
