I work and live in Melbourne, and love to explore and enjoy this great city and it's surrounds.

Just behind Aireys Inlet you can find the Angahook Forest, a pocket of heathland which forms part of the Angahook-Lorne State park.



The bush ranges from a variety of Gums, including Peppermints, Stringybarks, Ironbarks, Blue and Grey Gums, through to melaleuca and tea-tree in the swamp land. There are a few circuits walks to choose from with varied lengths, we did a loop walk incorporating Loves Track, an enjoyable 7.8km circuit walk which took us 1.5hours at a solid pace.

Considering how accessible this walk is, and that we were there on the Easter long weekend, we saw very few others on the track.

Should you wish to make a day of it there is a picnic area with facilities, or you could do as we did and drive back into town for some fish and chips at Aireys Inlet Fish and Chips.
