Nestled between Torquay and Lorne, on the famous Great Ocean Road, sits the small village of Anglesea is a popular tourist and caravan spot, particularly in the summer months – and many of our Goldstream RV owners rave about it.
Anglesea is a great place for family holidays. Not only does it offer two beautiful beaches offering safe swimming, surfing, fishing and boating, but it backs on to the gorgeous bushland of the Otway Ranges. Kangaroos, koalas, emus, and many varieties of water birds can be found within ten minutes drive of the village centre.
The local golf course is famous for its kangaroos grazing on the fairways and greens.
So Close To Melbourne, But A World Away
Anglesea lies just seventy minutes from Melbourne and is an excellent place to explore the attractions of the Great Ocean Road including Torquay, Lorne, Apollo Bay, the Twelve Apostles, and the joys of the Otway Ranges. It is only twenty minutes away from Victoria’s second largest city, Geelong.
The weather is quite mild throughout the winter months, with hot periods peaking in late summer. Anglesea surf beach and the sheltered beach at Point Roadknight are both patrolled.
All caravan parks and camp grounds within Anglesea are close to the beach and within five minutes drive of the local shopping centre.
