Best Things To Do In Anglesea

We’ve put together this complete list of what to do in Anglesea, as well as suggestions for the best Anglesea accommodation.

You’ll also find a handy map of the things to do around Anglesea that we mention here.

1) Go Swimming At An Anglesea Beach

Naturally, the Great Ocean Road has some of the best beaches around, so if you’re here in summer, don’t miss going for a swim and a spot of sunbathing.

Anglesea Beach

There are plenty of beaches to choose from. The main Anglesea Beach is just next to the mouth of the river and conveniently close to town.

Popular with locals, it’s patrolled during the summer months and the shallow waters and gentle waves make it perfect for swimming.

Build sandcastles, watch the waves, and enjoy the views of the cliffs at this stunning 400-metre stretch of coastline.

It’s just as beautiful in winter, go for a walk along the beach and enjoy the tranquility without the crowds of summer.

Guvvos Beach

Guvvos (O’Donohues) Beach, also known as Anglesea Dog Beach, is a great place to bring your four-legged friend. It’s an on-leash beach that’s dog-friendly year round (with no restrictions)

Although it’s a bit further out of town, this 5 kilometre long beach is huge and there’s plenty of room for everyone.

Note that this beach isn’t patrolled at all, and swimming isn’t recommended. There are a few rips and big swells that only advanced surfers tackle.

Beginner surfers should head to the Anglesea Surf Beach (see below) where you can rent a board and take some lessons.

But Guvvos is great for fishing, here you can catch Salmon, Snapper, Flathead, and Whiting.

Point Roadknight Beach

If you’re travelling with the family, you can safely paddle in the protected waters at the nearby Point Roadknight Beach. It’s one of the safest beaches around and is patrolled during the holidays.

Well known for its limestone formations and rock pools full of sea life, Point Roadknight has toilets, ample parking, and lots of room for everyone.

Urquhart Bluff

Further along the Great Ocean Road is another, even quieter beach. It’s also dog-friendly year round and allows off-leash play.

Urquhart Bluff South Beach is 200 metres long and has a wide, shallow, surf zone with a permanent rip against the southern headland and reef (not patrolled).

Bells Beach

Between Torquay and Anglesea is one of the most famous beaches on the Surf Coast.

The Bells Beach area is jam-packed every year at Easter when the Bells Beach Rip Curl Pro takes place. Started in 1962, it is the world’s longest-running professional surfing event.

This area is all about the surf, and only for pros as the currents are too strong for swimming. But it’s a great place to come and watch the fearless wave riders at any time of year.

Fun Fact: You may also recognise the name from the climactic finale of the Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze film, Point Break.

2) Explore The Rock Pools And Soapy Rocks

Point Roadknight Beach also has some great rock formations. When the tide is low, it’s a great spot to go rock pooling with the kids.

There are great views of the beautiful red sandstone cliffs that form Soapy Rock.

There’s a path up to the Soapy Rocks Lookout Point with great views over the sandy 700-metre beach below, the track is actually part of the Surf Coast Walk.

Be sure to stick to the paths as the rocks on the shore and at the top of the bluff behind the beach can be very slippery.

The name ‘Soapy Rock’ gives you an idea of this, locals also know it as ‘Slippery Rocks’.

You can easily lose a whole day here with children. Bring a picnic, plenty of water, and sunscreen on a hot day.

There’s not too much to do other than the beach but there are toilets, a large car park, and a barbecue area. You can also find the Anglesea Motor Yacht Club here.
