Angahook State Park

Literally upon your backdoor step you have a trail leading into the Angahook State Forest when you stay at Lorneview.

The forest is home to a rich variety of native flora and fauna in including kangaroos, wallabies and koalas.  

This is what Tourism Victoria has to say:

"Angahook-Lorne State Park has some of the richest flora in Victoria. The broad, gentle undulating ridges in the east of the park support extensive heathlands, excellent for wildflowers in Spring and early Summer. The paperbark swamps along Distillery and Salt Creeks are unique in the park, with dense Scented Paperbark, coral fern and tea tree. Red Ironbarks grow in a narrow rain shadow around Aireys Inlet with tall Blue Gums near the Moggs Creek picnic area".

The Moggs Creek Picnic Area is only a 30 minute walk from Lorneview.

One of our favourite walks takes you along the ridge behind Lorneview, affording fantastic panoramic views, then through the forest and back along the beach to home. It's an invigorating stroll you won't forget!
