I AM TORQUAY OFFICIAL MAP

IAMTORQUAY.COM.AU


YOU’RE WELCOME

I AM WHERE IT ALL BEGINS.

Torquay is the first stop on the Great Ocean Road. Your freedom quest begins here, on the edge of the ocean, only 90 minutes from Melbourne and 30 minutes from Geelong. Bare your feet and let your hair hang down. In this saltwater playground you get to make your own rules.

SURFING GROUND ZERO. Chill in the birthplace of Aussie surf culture where the cool brands, the big legends and the grassroots vibe first emerged. Catch a wave where the pros still carve up the ocean and a face-full of icy spray invigorates you. Nature’s big here. Find your own untold story while meditating by the sea, wandering a clifftop track or running a bush trail. Energise and restore mind, body and soul. Tap into the local vibe of saltwater wellness at day spas and retreats, fitness centres and healthy food eateries.


DO IT YOUR WAY. Torquay is as laid-back as they come. Boardshorts aren’t just the dress code, they were invented here! Live 24/7 in your thongs and your activewear. Explore the Hinterland’s wineries and farmgate produce, or dip your toes in the ocean at first light. Splurge on a fancy dinner or crunch through fish + chips on the beach. Down a local brew or two. Whether you do it all or do nothing … do it your way.

WHERE TO BEGIN

Torquay Visitor Information Centre Surf Coast Plaza, 77 Beach Road, Torquay Ph: 1300 614 219 www.iamtorquay.com.au | www.visitgreatoceanroad.org.au DISCLAIMER: Great Ocean Road Regional Tourism Limited including its officers, agents and contractors (“Publisher”) has made every endeavour to ensure that details in this publication are correct at the time of printing, but accept no responsibility for any inaccuracy or mis-description, whether by inclusion or omission, nor does the Publisher accept any responsibility for subsequent change or withdrawal of details or service shown which are subject to alteration without notice.

SURF MECCA

I AM THE FEAR THAT YOU CHASE FOR THE THRILL OF THE RIDE. It’s no wonder Torquay is a mecca for surf-lovers in Australia. You’ve got loads of surf breaks and beaches within easy reach. Saltiness and a chilled-out surfer vibe fills up the air … and your psyche as soon as you hit town. You’ll see it in board-capped cars lined up on the clifftops and hear it in wave reports eagerly shared in cafés, on walking tracks and around picnic tables on the foreshore. You’ll find it in galleries and arty haunts, specialty shops and retail outlets. You’ll discover its heritage in the surfing museum and rustic garages where world-renowned surf-based enterprises are hatched. And you’ll feel it in your being: the sense of freedom and renewal that pulls you back to the ocean day after day. Whether you’re a seasoned surfer or a newbie, just go with the flow. Unstrap your board and get amongst it. Or grab a beer and a picnic basket and watch from the sidelines. You don’t have to surf to appreciate the sacred ground of Bells Beach. Join the Easter pilgrimage for a sand-side view of the Rip Curl Pro, a world-class surfing event.


CATCH A WAVE > Pore over all things surfing at the Australian National Surfing Museum. Watch epic films in the Surfing Hall of Fame, explore the Board Room and get your head around board shaping in action. | australiannationalsurfingmuseum.com > Watch experienced surfers work their magic on Bells Beach or Winkipop’s legendary right-handers. Surrender to the call – Torquay has waves to suit everyone. > Find your balance and book a surf lesson with a local and learn the ropes. You’ll soon be addicted to the natural high. | gorideawave.com.au | gorsurftours.com.au > Find your surfer style. Deck yourself out at Surf City Plaza, a showcase for iconic surf retail brands including big names like Rip Curl and Quiksilver, which were born in Torquay in 1969. Head to Baines Court for bargain-filled outlet stores.


BIG NATURE

I AM THE FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND AND I WALK MY OWN PATH. Unplug, chill-down and nature-up on your terms. Get dunked in the shallows, build sandcastles like no one’s watching, mull over the drama of a distant reef break or daydream flying high over Bird Rock. Go where you’ve never been to vast underwater worlds protected in marine parks. Simply hanging out on Torquay’s awesome coastline is a mind opener.


FEEL THE FREEDOM > Get your beach vibe on and spend a day at Surf City kitting yourself out in the major surf brands. Spend some time at the Australian National Surfing Museum to get inspired. > Get twitchy and tune into local birdlife. There are dozens of vantage points to sit quietly on a clifftop, connect to the energy of the coastline and watch for Albatross, Petrels and Peregrine Falcons or keen eyes may spot the threatened Hooded Plover or Rufous Bristlebird. > Tread where early surfers barefooted through scrub on the Bells Track from Bird Rock to Bells Beach. It’s like a 3.2km linear lookout with scene-stealing views of reef breaks and endless waves marching in along surfing’s ‘golden mile’. | surfcoastwalk.com.au


SALTWATER WELLNESS

I AM THE VINYASA FLOW THAT ECHOES THE OCEAN.

Torquay is salt of the earth, ebb of the sea – a place to reconnect mind, body and soul. Wake with the sun for yoga on the sand. Seek out a resort-style retreat or spa with your name all over it. Wander the Esplanade eatery strip to find a green smoothie or an energy bowl served up with a good side of sustainability ethos. > Check out and chill out. Nurture the skin you’re in, beach-style, with an energising sea salt exfoliation and massage at a day spa. | endotaspa.com.au > Begin as you mean to end. Connect with free spirits and like-minded locals at an early morning pilates or yoga class outdoors in the fresh air or in a light-filled space. > At the Saturday morning Torquay Farmers Market, shop locally produced, organic, vego, vegan, wholefoods, slow foods, fresh-caught, just-plucked and more. | torquaylife.com.au/markets


OUTDOOR ACTIVE

I AM THE WAVE THAT BRINGS IN THE DAY AND I’M YOURS FOR THE TAKING. Torquay is an awesome, sun-blessed place to get active in the great outdoors. Fitness and connection to nature are a way of life here. Stretch your legs on a coastal walking track. Run a bushland trail against nothing but your PB. Or blow out the cobwebs with a sunrise cycle along The Esplanade. Golfing, cycling, fishing, lazy beach ambling and picnicking – it’s all fresh air and make-your-own-rules fun. > Set your own pace on the Surf Coast Walk. Go easy with 1.6km Yellow Bluff to Point Danger section. Or go hard on the 8.2km Bells Beach to Point Addis section through the Ironbark Basin. | surfcoastwalk.com.au > Golf against a beachy backdrop. Tee-off to the sounds of waves crashing and play your own game on wide-open fairways. | thesandstorquay.com | racv.com.au > Pack (or hire) your tacklebox and join local anglers fishing the evening waves off Fishermans Beach, at the mouths of Spring Creek and Thompson Creek at Breamlea or at Jan Juc Beach.


EVENTS

WHEN IT COMES TO LIFE, I BITE OFF MORE THAN I CAN CHEW. Gather your squad and arrive in time for one of Torquay’s many events and festivals. Sporty, surfie, foodie – do it your way. >  Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race: A cycling event for the ages, played out on a world-class coastline. | cadelevansgreatoceanroadrace.com.au >  Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach: Make an Easter pilgrimage to a sacred surfing ground to see the world’s best surfers compete on the championship tour. | worldsurfleague.com/events >  Black Diamond Afterglow Twilight-Night Trail Run: Run free where the vibe’s all eighties retro and disco beats.
