Our Location

Anglesea is located 112 km from Melbourne via Geelong on the Great Ocean Road. The Geelong Ring Road and freeway make it an easy trip down from Melbourne.

The Centre is just 1.2 km from the Anglesea shops and a similar distance from the main surf beach.  A safer beach for younger children is 3km away at Point Roadknight. We are only 800m to the beautiful heath lands of Anglesea and walks in the Otway National Park.
