Anglesea is perfect for a natural adventure.

Beach, bush and kangaroos are the ingredients used to make Anglesea a favourite holiday spot. Located 10 minutes west of Torquay on the Great Ocean Road.

There is more to Anglesea than its fresh clean air and glorious water views. Anglesea is a recognised haven for its abundant flora, particularly rare orchids and native flowers during spring. With attractive parks and gardens, Anglesea is also renowned for its wildlife, particularly the kangaroos. Take an hour (or a day) to explore the spectacular Surf Coast Walk – it showcases the beautiful coastal landscape of the region and the untouched natural beauty. The Anglesea Golf Course is the place to meet the real locals, with beautiful kangaroos coming out to graze at dusk and dawn. It is a beautiful sight to see.
