Surrounded by gum trees and bushland, we are only a five-minute walk from the Anglesea shopping strip and a 15-20 minute walk to the ocean beach. The main beachfront is patrolled by lifesavers throughout summer and the river mouth of Anglesea River provides a sheltered paddling and beach area for family picnics or group activities.
Many people comment on Araluen’s serene, peaceful environment. Our facilities are suitable for schools, church groups and for any group wanting to gather together at a pleasant, well-appointed venue.
