Letâ€™s get active
For the love of the great outdoors.
Hit the trail, walking or running Sample Anglesea’s twisting clifftop, beach, river, woodland and heathland tracks on the 22.6km Anglesea Perimeter Walk (includes Cliff Top Track). Find the Surf Coast Walk’s best access points at the river – stroll east towards Bells Beach, or west to Aireys Inlet. Saunter the 2km return Point Addis Koorie Cultural Walk.
Take me to the river Anglesea River offers boardwalks, jetties, riverside parks, paddleboats and flat water perfect for newbie kayaking or stand-up paddle boarding (SUP). Hire whatever you need – bikes, boards, motorised boats, kayaks, paddles or paddle-boards – then plunge in.
Park central Picnic at Coogarah Reserve where young buccaneers can captain a sunken pirate ship. At Lions Park, they’ll thrill to a little people playground and skate park, then climb some massive carved wooden sea creatures near the Four Kings playground near the river mouth and beach access.
Give it a whirl Zero in on Anglesea Bike Park’s 500m world-class mountain cross (4x) track and other awesome off road mountain bike tracks. Cycle the shared sections of the Surf Coast Walk or hit the coastal bush for semi-established single-track. Fish from the boardwalk or beach, go barefoot bowling or team up for a hit of tennis.
