ANGAIR (Anglesea, Aireys Inlet Society for the Preservation of Flora and Fauna) is dedicated to protecting our indigenous flora and fauna, and to maintaining the natural beauty of Anglesea and Aireys Inlet and their local environments. It was established in 1969 through the influence of a local resident Mrs Edith Lawn. Read more about our achievements over the last 50 years.
We hope you enjoy your visit to the Angair website and will consider joining our Society. If you are interested in the environment, want to learn more about the flora and fauna found in it, and wish to conserve it for future generations, there are lots of different ways you can get involved and support us.
You might also enjoy visiting the Angair Nature Show website for further multi-media information about the wonderful environment, the diverse flora and fauna and self-guided walks around Anglesea and Airey’s Inlet.
After a slow start to spring, October has proved to be a wonderful month for orchids especially for our sun orchids that are out there in great numbers, showing their beauty on warm sunny days when the heathlands have been just a mass of colour.
Seven participants enjoyed the cool winter morning sunshine as we descended on the main track from the Point Addis Rd car park into the Ironbark Basin. Although not the flowering season for most plants there was plenty to keep us interested starting with the bright blossoms of the Varnish and Golden Wattles.
A group of 14 birders visited two sites near Torquay on a splendid sunny morning. The first was Point Impossible near the carpark at the mouth of the Thompson River, to see the Double-banded Plovers in breeding plumage before they migrate to New Zealand at the end of August to nest.
The recent cold wet weather has meant the orchids have been slow to develop this month but with the recent warmer sunshine buds are starting to swell and we still have the promise of some good late winter flowering.
On Monday 13th June, Queen’s Birthday weekend, a group of us met for a Nature Ramble in the Great Otway National Park.
There are a number of wonderful local Friends Groups that provide Angair members and the community with opportunities for involvement.
