Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My wife and I visited this place to collect a few maps and gather some information about the area.

The location of this information centre is very good. It is highly visible from the main road, there are plenty of car parking spots and there is a very scenic walking track along the waterfront that leads to the bay.

We took a break here on the way to Lotte. Just by the river abs it has a barbecue area and a dock for fishing. Quite a few people enjoying the warm outdoor here. Nice place for a little break.

On the way to Lorne we stopped at Anglesea Visitors Info Center but unfortunately it was closed. Still, this spot on the Great Ocean Road turned out to be a great starting point because strolling on this picnic spot freshened us up and we bought coffee and other stuff from the store conveniently located across the road; right up front with all the goodies that one might need before setting off for a long drive. Nice little place with walking track, bbq pits, swings for kiddos, and water inlet to give you good feelings and lots of photo opportunities.

We stayed on the Great Ocean Road and wanted to see whatever we could so in we go the Anglesea Visitor Info Centre, the lady there was so helpful and asked what we want to see and do ? well the information was beyond what we expected so she told us of her experiences and what was worth doing. Great advice and did it all.

We visited the centre to get more information on the walking/bike path and the lady was very pleasant and as helpful as she could be and recommended other locations.

The people here are delightful and extremely knowledgeable of the area. It's well worth a drop in if you aren't familiar with Anglesea and what lies before and after this destination. This part of the coastline has so much to offer and you really don't want to miss any of it.
Parking is easy and it's wheelchair friendly. There are plenty of brochures to take away and plan your time.

Located alongside the Anglesea River this Visitor Information Centre has been wonderfully designed to blend in almost seamlessly with its stunning natural surroundings. In addition to the main building the adjacent structures & immediate area allow for a wide range of riparian activities - [thank you Mrs Hyacinth Bucket] - such as Bike Riding, BBQ, Picnicking, Trail Walking & Fishing.

[ Where to Go & What To Do ]:

Whilst somewhat smaller than their counterparts found along the Coast the advice dispensed is no less valuable covering a wide of enquiries such as affordable Accommodations, Historical Sites & Places of Interest, popular Restaurants & of course being the Great Ocean Road, a variety of Maps & Sets of Directions.

I personally enjoy being able to pick up locally based Newsletters regarding up & coming events such as the Sunday Riverside Markets & those that help us in discovering the multitude of National Parks, Waterfalls, Native Flora & Fauna that are particular to the region. Sometimes Visitor Information Centres & even some of the general stores along this stretch of the Great Ocean Road will also supply leaflets for the movies that may be currently showing at the iconic 100 year old Lorne Theatre.

For those whom love art and bushwalking you can combine the two by experiencing the Anglesea Art Walk which spans for just over two [2] kilometres incorporating six [6] mosaic art installations that are situated at various points of interest along the way such as 'Lookouts' offering sensational views of the Surfcoast & the famous 'White Lady' at Aireys Inlet. The Mosaic Art Works highlight the history and unique flora and fauna of the area. A brochure about the Art Walk is available from the Anglesea Information Centre.

[ Other facilities are provided ]:
It is clear that a great deal of thought has gone into what the public may require of such an Information Hub & other assistance includes Public Toilets both Male & Female, ample tables & chairs along with a Shaded BBQ Area, Allocated Disabled Car Park spaces, easy access ramps & a water pump dispensing water for free to fill up your drink bottles along the way.

The Anglesea Jetty is directly opposite & it is understood that fishing is a popular past time with catches including Snapper, Bream and Salmon. Within walking distance of the building is an opportunity for canoe, paddle boat, canoe or kayak hire which is also a great way to arrive here & meet with the staff to benefit from their extensive knowledge of the area.

[Summary]:
All in all I am sure many would agree how the assistance provided by means of such Visitor Information Centre's is extremely valuable & helps add to the enjoyment of our travels by showing us the best this country has on offer as we journey through the vast & wide open spaces.
We can be grateful too that in times such as Bushfire Season we are able to turn to them & draw upon their local knowledge which many will agree - it is no exaggeration to highlight - such details can be crucial to our survival.
Whilst they do try & operate to set hours please remember that mostly these community offices are staffed by friendly volunteers so on the odd occasion you may find them closed unexpectedly. If that is the case you will find that additional centres are situated all through the Great Ocean Road.

Thank you for reading this review, we hope that it has been helpful. Please also enjoy the attached photographs & their captions as they too form a part of this review.
