Our Backyard – Anglesea

Welcome to Anglesea

I celebrated my first Anglesea Christmas with friends and family, I certainly chose well given the weather. It felt so incredibly Australian being able to go for a swim at Point Roadknight in the morning and a swim at Guvvos in the evening, so relaxing to enjoy the environment I love so much on such a special day. I loved seeing dolphins enjoying the waves and also a few stingrays close to shore.

Now for New Years Eve, well of course I’ll be back to Point Roadknight to the yacht club with a load of gorgeous people celebrating a wonderful year that was and looking forward to a great year ahead.

When I first moved to Anglesea I was shocked at the lack of transport available to get people home safely from venues after a few drinks. I am absolutely thrilled that in the last couple of months there is now a couple of local options and drivers to book so people can feel comfortable about enjoying a few celebration beverages!

This week saw the ‘new and improved’ roundabout in action, whilst I didn’t notice a dramatic impact to traffic flow, I also can’t say it’s any worse or better off. Traffic is always going to be super busy and these two weeks in particular are the busiest of the year. Planning and patience goes a long way to making sure any day trips aren’t spent in hot cars and extra hours on a journey.

Reports of Shark sightings at Anglesea and Fairhaven has sent a few people into a bit of panic as the Westpac helicopters noted groups of about 20 or so. My take on this……. The ocean is their home and that’s where they live, so why wouldn’t they be swimming there? They are always there its really just that the monitoring of the coast is more prominent in the summer. If you see a fin and it’s not a dolphins then perhaps swim like you never have before!

Congratulations to all that participated in the Roo Run this year, it is such a wonderful community event and even though the conditions weren’t perfect it didn’t put off the entrants. The volunteers for this event are amazing and they should be commended for the love and effort they contribute. We are very proud to be the major sponsor. Well done to the winners.
