Reasons to visit

The seaside town of Anglesea is situated on the Great Ocean Road at the mouth of the Anglesea River. Both the river and the surf beaches are popular swimming areas and scenic lookouts can be found above the town's main surf beach. 

There are pretty parks and gardens along the coast near Anglesea too and you can walk the boardwalks and bridges at Coogoorah Park and explore the islands in the wetlands. Head north-east to Point Addis and watch hang gliders take off from the rugged sandstone cliffs. 

Tour the Great Ocean Road and see incomparable coastal scenery, Bells Beach, the Split Point Lighthouse, Memorial Arch, The Twelve Apostles, rainforest and bucolic dairy farms. Foodies should head straight for the Otway Harvest Trail and/or the 12 Apostles Gourmet Trail.

Explore the rugged coast and hinterland of the Great Otway National Park and discover fern gullies, waterfalls, cliff-lined coast, coves and sandy beaches.
