Make Yourself at Home in Anglesea

This friendly coastal holiday destination is set right on the Great Ocean Road, just over 100 kilometres from Melbourne. Coastal cliffs and long-stretching white beaches make Anglesea a beautiful backdrop for a relaxing holiday. While the town is small in size, with just over 2,000 full-time residents, the summer population swells, and there is plenty to do to occupy the lazy summer days of your holiday. Well-maintained holiday homes are just one of the many rental options available for your time in Anglesea, with some visitors favouring beachfront apartments and secluded cottages.

Anglesea’s Swimming Spots

Point Roadknight Beach is the ideal destination for travellers with children. This beach is protected by a reef and dune calcarenite, creating calm waters with waves that are less than one metre high. As an added bonus, Point Roadknight Beach is patrolled throughout the summer and during the Christmas holidays.

For a greater thrill, head over to Anglesea's Main Beach. The waves that roar through this beach are great for less experienced surfers, and the waters are generally safe for swimming if you stay in the patrolled area. This white-sand beach stretches 4 kilometres and showcases beautiful scenery in addition to its pristine waters.

The Anglesea River is known as another calm spot for swimming. The water is also ideal for canoeing and paddling, if you so desire. Spread out a blanket, and have a picnic on the spacious banks.

Keep Active in Anglesea

When in Angelsea, keep active by playing sports. The Anglesea Golf Club is a beautiful seaside course that offers 18 holes. While hitting the links, make sure you keep watch for the over 300 kangaroos that call the course home. A fun form of exercise for those old and young, the skate park in Anglesea boasts a concrete ramp on which to practice your skills. If you really crave adventure, mountain biking is a popular pastime in Anglesea. You have two options for mountain bike paths: Anglesea Bike Park and the trails of Great Otway National Park.

Enjoy the Riverbank

There are plenty of places to just hang out along the shore of the Anglesea River, but there is also much to do. Each Sunday, a vibrant market is held near the river and the great mixture of stalls within the market provides something for everyone. Anytime of the week, you can stroll along the boardwalk, people watch, hire a boat, get some rental equipment or scout out a spot to relax. In addition, Coogorah Park offers a place for kids to get rid of their pent-up energy and plenty of shade for you to sit in while you watch them play.

Get up in the Air

While in Anglesea, visitors have the opportunity to take in the town’s scenery and the coastline from above. Hop aboard a helicopter for a one-of-a-kind tour of the entire Great Ocean Road. If a helicopter is a little too much for your comfort level, hire the services of a seaplane, and look over every nook and cranny of Anglesea. If you are feeling especially brave, vintage war bird aerobatic plane tours are available. Expect twists, turns, drops and more during your exciting ride.

Visiting Anglesea

Whether you are on the shore, in the water or in the air, having the time of your life is never an issue in Anglesea. When packing, consider that even the summer nights get a little chilly, so a sweater or thin jacket is advised.

Fabulous Apartment!

5 of 5
WOW! We were rapt the minute we all walked in! I had read all the reviews but the Apartment was beyond my expectations! It was spotlessly clean which is our first priority. Everything that we could possibly need was catered for. Bright, light and modern. The location is sensational. We walked everywhere. The beach was exactly a 10 minute walk from the door to plonking on the sand and then an ice cream was a 5 min walk to the shops and the kids could walk this on their own. We came home yesterday and have re-booked it today!! Thank you Kristen!
