Perfect your jumps at the Anglesea Bike Park Mountain Cross Track, Victoria's first professionally designed loop and jumps track.

Nature provides an extensive playground of sheltered beaches where kids can make sand castles, swim and run expending excess energy and making joyous laughter and happy memories.

There are also walking tracks and a skate park in the grounds.
