Torquay is a major seaside holiday destination on the route of the Great Ocean Road. Notorious for its wild surfing beaches, which are said to be some of the best in the world during surf season. Indeed, at this time of year Torquay can become quite busy, full of young surfers from Melbourne and further afield.
Torquay is the home of many prevalent surf brands such as Rip Curl, Quicksilver and Strapper. And as we might expect, shopping for these well-known surf brands and more, is one of the most enjoyable experiences when visiting Torquay. If any Southern Australian town could be considered the surf capital, it would be Torquay.
Surfing aside, Torquay has much to offer nature lovers. The Point Danger Marine Sanctuary can be explored by boat, and for those who prefer dry land, the Surf Coast Walk is easily accessible.
