Today Anglesea is a popular holiday destination combining a good beach with plenty of holiday activities. The fishing, surfing, sailing and windsurfing are excellent. Not surprisingly the town's population increases dramatically in the summer months from 2,500 to 15,000.
The 35km Surfcoast Walk passes through the town and you can wander in both directions, along the coast and inland up beside the Anglesea River.
Anglesea is known for its golf course. Scores of kangaroos happily graze on the wide fairways or loll about near the greens. You don’t have to be a player to enjoy the spectacle. Sightseers can get a good view of the ’roos and wallabies from Golf Links Road. Read more about Anglesea
