Click to view large mapAnglesea is mid point between Torquay and Aireys Inlet. It is a beautiful little coastal town surrounded by Eucalyptus Bush and coastal heath land. There's good accommodation for all budgets if you want to stay a day or two. To look at a map of the Anglesea circuit click the map button or click here>>

If you wish to explore Anglesea there is no better way to start than to take the number 2 walking track around the town. Give yourself a couple of hours to do it.

If you begin the Anglesea Circuit at the Anglesea Main Beach, Number 2 Walking Track follows the steep incline of Harvey Street up past Loveridge Lookout. The Lookout commands one of the Surf Coast's most spectacular views. It's clearly sign posted, so you wont miss it.

Continue up Harvey Street and along the hill ridge which leads to Mount Ingoldsby. At the corner of O'Donnahues and Harvey Street the Angahook Forest Park begins on the left. This area is highly significant in that it contains several rare plants and animals and is one of the few remaining tracks of relatively untouched coastal heathland left in Victoria.

If you continue up Harvey Street you can't help but notice to your right a collection of large communication towers. These are relay towers for TV, telephones, mobile phones and emergency services. A small track leads off to the right into the bush just before you reach the towers. You can follow this track which runs parallel with Harvey Street up to Mt Ingoldsby.

This little dirt track passes through Eucalyptus bushland, which at the right time of the year, presents an abundance of wildflowers.
