Overview

Torquay

Dose up on surf culture at Torquay, the home of Bells Beach and birthplace of iconic brands Rip Curl and Quicksilver. The official start point of the Great Ocean Road, Torquay is Victoria's surfing and beach worship capital. Visit over Easter and see the world's best surfers compete in the mighty Rip Curl Pro.

A surfing obsession

Holiday with the family and splash about on one of the protected beaches. If you prefer the action of the surging surf, nearby Jan Juc is a little wilder, and experienced surfers can tackle the big swells of Bells Beach. This world-famous beach is the venue for the Rip Curl Pro, one of the most sought after titles on the World Championship Tour.

Some of the biggest names in surfwear and accessories had their start in Torquay and their influence is on show at Surf City Plaza, a shopping precinct devoted to the sport. Stock up on the latest from the likes of Rip Curl, Quiksilver, Strapper, Gash and Rojo. Around the corner you can bag yourself a bargain from the Baines Court surf seconds outlets.

Museum trips and nature walks

While at its busiest in the hot summer months, Torquay is a year-round destination offering more than just amazing surf. Capture the spirit of surf culture with a visit to the Surf World Surfing Museum with pictures and hands-on displays. Stroll along sandy beaches beneath towering cliffs or take fine views of the coast from vantage points along the Surf Coast Walk. Don't be afraid of the name, snorkelling around Point Danger Marine Sanctuary is a great way to see some of the diversity of the area's underwater inhabitants.
