Discovery Torquay

Torquay is the official start of the Great Ocean Road, the home of Bells Beach and birthplace of iconic brands Rip Curl and Quicksilver. Originally built on the back of its strong surfing traditions, Torquay has developed into one of Victoria’s most popular holiday destinations. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing family escape or a romantic getaway, Torquay will deliver.

There’s no doubt the main attraction of Torquay is its diverse beaches. From the family friendly, tree lined front beach, to the mighty Bells Beach, home of the Rip Curl Pro surfing title, Torquay’s beaches offer something for everyone.
