Anglesea Heath is the richest and most diverse vegetation community in Victoria. Amazingly, about a quarter of Victoria's plant species can be found here including over 80 different types of orchids.

Spring time is particularly spectacular as the heathland erupts into a sea of vibrant colour.

Few places so close to Melbourne offer such diversity and natural beauty.
