You choose!  

The Surf Coast Walk has 12 sections stretching from Point Impossible to Fairhaven. Sections 6, 7 and 8 begin from Anglesea. Section 6 is a rugged trail taking in the spectrum of coastal colours — vivid ochre of the cliffs, brilliant blue of the ocean and dappled green of the heathland. Along the way, you might spot kangaroos and hear native birds playing out their improvised soundtrack. Among the low brush forest, look for wild flowers putting on a spectacular spring show. 

Walk it your way! Anglesea is the mid-point of the Surf Coast Walk, linking to Torquay via Eumeralla, Point Addis and Bells Beach, or to Aireys Inlet via Point Roadknight. 

Why not opt for a shorter section to start, then work up to the reaches beyond? Every step is a new adventure waiting for you.
