Your holiday home away from home – Angelsea, Great Ocean Road, Australia

Just over an hour’s drive south westerly of Melbourne will bring you down to the northern side of the infamous Great Ocean Road and to Angelsea. The popular holiday resort town at the sea is a dynamic mix of small seaside amenities and friendly hospitality and evidence of urban sprawl scattered in between. Originally known as Swampy Creek, this gorgeous resort has an excellent reputation for providing families with lots to do when they head down to the coast to their holiday homes. Very busy in the summer season, the rolling picnic lawns are full of families enjoying their holidays, while the Anglesea River runs along the banks to the sea. The area has been beautifully preserved, despite the surge in holiday homes and holiday rentals being built along the coast. The natural habitats and sand dunes are well protected and have retained their untouched characteristics.

Out and About

Angelsea is a wonderful all round holiday destination for the entire family. The beaches are safe for the kids to swim in, but the surf is powerful enough to keep the body boarders happy, which are just some of the reasons many choose to have their holiday accommodation here.

It’s not just humans that love it here. The Angelsea Golf Course is well known for its ever present and large population of Eastern Grey Kangaroos that live in and around the area and used the course as their own private grazing grounds. With the most picturesque setting in between the natural busy and wild life, this world class golf course is a huge favourite in the seaside town.

With excellent fishing spots all along the coast, visitors can enjoy summer outdoor sports such as sailing, windsurfing, skiing, diving and swimming at the gorgeous beaches. If you don’t already know how to surf, the time is now. Lots of highly qualified surf instructors give lessons on the beach. Have a look for a list of them and how to contact them in your holiday accommodation.

Surfboards, body boards, kayaks, canoes and all the relevant gear can be hired directly from the beach, so there is no need to bring all your surfing paraphernalia with you. There’s also bikes for hire so saddle up and head on out on one of the numerous cycle tracks, through the picturesque sea side town.

For the adrenalin junkies, you can take a spectacular helicopter tour, all throughout the bay and right over the entire Great Ocean Road region. Or take a scenic seaplane tour over Angelsea and over Geelong. You can even go on a vintage war bird adventure plane and get a taste of a serious aerobatic flight – definitely not for the faint hearted!

The Weather

It’s gorgeous beach weather during the summer months prevails from October to March, with moderate sunny temperatures reaching about 26 C and dropping down to 15 C at night, bringing a cool summer evening to the town. The cool sea breeze stops the temperatures from rising in the summer.

Winter temperatures range from a high of 15 C during the day and dropping down to a chilly 7 C at night. The area has plenty of rain right throughout the year, especially between April and September, but you will just need to pack a thin wet weather jacket to take with you when you leave your holiday home to go out.

If you are taking a sunset stroll along the beach in the evening, or even a cycle along the paths on the coast walk, just pack a thin sweater to take with you, as the wind can get quite chilly coming off the sea, even in summer.

Getting to Angelsea from the UK

Book a flight directly from the UK, all of the major airports, like Heathrow and Gatwick have flights every day, to Melbourne. International air carriers such as Qantas, Virgin Australia and Jetstar, will fly you directly into Melbourne International Airport, or to Geelong International Airport.

Rent a car and drive the 122 km from Melbourne along the beautiful Great Ocean Road, and take a relaxing meander along to your holiday accommodation in Angelsea. Or hire a car at Geelong, if you just want to get there and put your feet up on your deck of your holiday home and watch the sun go down, as the drive is only about 50km and substantially quicker to self drive.
