About the Torquay Area
Situated on the Great Ocean Road, Anglesea is nested between the Victorian coastal towns of Torquay and Aireys Inlet on the mouth of Anglesea River.
Torquay has fantastic surf beaches and patrolled swimming beaches and is a popular tourist resort surrounded by both forest and beach scenery.
Other scenic spots along the coast include the rocky Point Roadknight and the lookouts off Harvey Street and the Great Ocean Road above the town's main surf beach.
Anglesea is surrounded by attractive parks and gardens along the coastal foreshore and the Anglesea River. Coogoorah Park at the end of River Reserve Road features a network of islands linked by board-walks and bridges through wetlands.
Just north-east of Anglesea is Point Addis where rugged sandstone cliffs overlook a marine national park. Below the cliff top is an ideal surfing spot while the cliff is a popular place for hang gliders.
Anglesea is home to the Alcoa Open Cut Mine which uses locally harvested coal to generate electricity. There are lookouts near the power station and across the open cut mine.
