Great Ocean Road VICTORIA


Home of Australian surfing

WELCOME TO

Torquay


Welcome to Torquay - surfing ground zero and start to the Great Ocean Road.

Time and tide Take your time. Whether you’re chasing wicked waves, angling for adventure or seeking out solitude, Torquay boasts an abundance of things to do, see and taste. Just 95km south west of Melbourne, Torquay has thrived, from its origins in the psyches of free surfers in the 1950s and 1960s, into a hotspot for all things surfing and a popular holiday haven for the young and young at heart.

It's the vibe It’s easy to tap into Australia’s home of surfing: endless beaches, big surf brands at Surf City Plaza shopping precinct, the relaxed vibe at eateries and drink stops, and the coastal-cool character of the locals. Come at Easter and join in the excitement of the Rip Curl Pro international surfing competition.

On the edge This is where the Great Ocean Road begins, where the Southern Ocean meets towering cliffs and sandy stretches, and the perfect location to begin (or end) your regional adventure. Step back into surfing history at the Australian National Surfing Museum, dine in style within earshot of crashing waves, follow an arts trail or buckle on a backpack and cycle a clifftop track. Whatever you choose to do here, Torquay offers something fresh at every turn. www.visitgreatoceanroad.org.au Use: #visitgreatoceanroad VisitGreatOceanRoad @Visitgreatoceanroad @VstGreatOceanRd


Histor y

WHERE IT ALL BEGINS

Anchored to the sea


Torquay's origins are anchored to the sea.

Name dropp ing See where the big names of surfing were born – and still hang-out. Dig your toes into Bells Beach, home of the Rip Curl Pro, the world’s longest-running surfing competition. Go shopping at the Surf City Plaza, a showcase for iconic and locally bred surf brands, Rip Curl, Quiksilver and many more.

Ship to shore The coastline between Torquay and Barwon Heads has taken more than 15 ships over the past 200 years. At Torquay Front Beach and the boat ramp, see the anchors of the sailing ship Scammell that foundered on the reef near Point Danger in 1891.
