Find your Freedom at The Flying Duck Orchid

Inspired by Anglesea’s Caleana major orchid, the Flying Duck is a rare Australian bloom that only grows in the wild:

Shaped like a tiny duck,

The Flying Duck Orchid

its head held high,

purple wings swept back.

As if ready to take flight,

that’s the call to freedom,

from this boutique retreat,

across from the wildflowers of Anglesea Heath, and the ocean.

Top tips for Anglesea:

Roadknight beach is the safest beach for kids. It is sheltered from the prevailing westerly winds. It has long rolling waves that are ideal for learning to surf, particularly for small kids.

Main beach has smaller waves than the open surf, but larger than Roadknight. It is good for learning to surf for older kids, or small kids if there is not too much swell. It is patrolled peak periods and summer weekends, but there usually isn't strong rips, so it is fairly safe.

Most of the other beaches around have large surf, strong rips and no life saving patrols, so beware.

Most beaches are dog friendly. There is signage at all beach entrances with instructions. Keep dogs away from the rare Hooded Plover nesting sites.

Anglesea Main Beach is a timeshare dog friendly area and from the 1 December28 February and Easter dogs are only permitted off leash between 7pm and 9am.

The Otways National Park starts across the road and stretches 70km to the west along the Great Ocean Road.  There are walking and mountain bike trails networking throughout, just waiting to be explored, winding down to the ocean. The area around Anglesea is famous for it heathland flowers in Spring. Busloads of people visit each year to see the orchids and heath.

Food and Drink:

Captain Moonlight-Surf Club Restaurant

McGains Nursery

Kiosk at Point RoadKnight Beach.Open 7 am til 7 pm. Weekends.Good coffee. Fish and chips

Anglesea Golf Club. Have drinks at club house at dusk and watch the kangaroos gather on the fairways. They are most prolific at dawn and dusk, but are often there during the day. They also do little Kangaroo tours in golf buggies with retired golfers. Kind of fun in a daggy kind of way.

Maids Pantry good breakfast and lunch but busy

Laneway in the main shops good coffee

4 Kings has good breakfast and coffee

Diggers Garden - good vegetation and clean food.

If you are looking for a pub. The Anglesea Hotel is pretty uninspiring. I’d recommend you drive to Aireys Inlet ( 9 km up The Great Ocean Road) . Great pub, lawn, brewery and atmosphere.

The Fairhaven Surf Club has spectacular views, food and a bar open on weekends.

Little Feast Restaurant In Aireys Inlet also good.

Great Ocean Road Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery is at the top of the hill coming in to Anglesea

Lovely Little Beach House

We had a great stay at Flying Duck Orchid. It is located in a quiet area and only a short drive to beaches and shops. The house is very well equipped,- comfortable beds, very clean, good kitchen and equipment and big TV. Our 2 dogs had plenty of space in the secure backyard. In short we could not ask for more and would be happy to return.

A wonderful family mini break at Flying Duck Orchid

What a terrific few days we had as a family at Flying Duck Orchid. The house is simply beautiful - light filled, art filled and furnished with its stylish retro decor, yet with all the comfort of clean modern kitchen and bathrooms. The living area looks onto a large and secure back garden (complete with a spring free trampoline) which our young children had a ball in while my husband and I were able to relax inside or on the deck. Equally enjoyed by the children was the array of toys and books in the kids room - they were never bored. Of course the house offers lots for grown ups too in the way of novels and DVDs and the living room is a relaxing space to retreat to once the kids are in bed. The house has all the comforts of home, hydronic heating kept us lovely and warm when it was chilly outside, the beds are comfy with nice soft linens, and the bathrooms and kitchen are stocked thoughtfully with all the little necessities. I don’t think we’ve ever stayed in a beach house with such a well equipped kitchen and with young children, a full laundry is also a godsend. We had a beautiful walk, hunting for wildflowers in the Anglesea Heath which is right across the road and Anglesea itself has so much to offer in terms of parks and activities for families. It was a perfect mini break and next time we will definitely be back for longer!
