Towns and Activities - Anglesea

Anglesea is another surfing holiday town famous for it's golf course with large resident kangaroo population. Anglesea is also a great place to explore on foot. The 35 kilometre Surf Coast Walk passes through the town and can be followed in either direction, along the coast and inland up beside the Anglesea River.

Four camping and caravan parks make Anglesea an increasingly popular holiday resort and the peak summer season sees the population balloon from 2000 to more than 15,000. Many of those summer visitors are drawn by the annual, New Year's Day regatta which is distinguished by the Anglesea River sail past of 100-year-old craft.

Surfing, fishing (both sea and river) are popular pastimes along with horse riding on the beach or golf with the kangaroos. Lifeguards patrol the beach during the season.

Anglesea is 109 kilometres from Melbourne. Travel by car via the Great Ocean Road. Daily coach services are available from Melbourne or rail/coach services via Geelong.
