Anglesea and Lorne
The closest sizeable town to Airey's Inlet, Anglesea offers a supermarket, several bakeries and eateries, a bike shop, surf shops and a range of activities.
The glamour town of the Victorian south coast, Lorne in summer is packed to bursting with people enjoying the gorgeous beach and sparkling blue water, alongside an endless choice of cafes, ice-creameries and restaurants. The Pier-to-Pub weekend and New Year's celebrations are major calendar events and worth a look, if crowds, colour and excitement are your thing.
After the January/February crush, Lorne becomes a quiet seaside town (albeit with more than the standard selection of places to eat and drink).
