Anglesea, a great place for a quickie away

Take a fast break from Melbourne and be mesmerized by landscapes, experiences, and attractions which feel a world away from life in the capital.

There is sparkling coastline; magnificent wine regions; incredible national parks, and much more.

The perfect weekend escape from Melbourne is just around the corner.

If you crave a vacation without having to venture too far, visit Anglesea. This idyllic seaside town marks the beginning of the eastern end of the Great Ocean Road and oozes a relaxing, welcoming vibe that is cherry ripe for a brief break from Melbourne.

The best outdoor attraction is the Anglesea Golf Club. The sight of dozens of kangaroos functions as a potent reminder that you are on vacation.

The most underrated attraction is the walking trail to Point Addis. It is crammed with impressive views, wildlife encounters, and wildflowers.

Our budget suggestion is having a picnic at Coogoorah Park while enjoying the wetlands. It’s a fantastic place for a walk, too.
