Victoria’s surfing and beach worship capital, Torquay Beach is the start point of the Great Ocean Road. Torquay offers idyllic ocean views and a cool sea breeze on hot days. There are plenty of picnic tables, barbecues, and a large children’s playground.
If you’re spending the whole day in the area there are other activities to do besides relaxing at the beach.
You could visit Surf World Surfing Museum with pictures and hands-on displays, stroll along sandy beaches beneath towering cliffs and take fine views of the coast from vantage points along the Surf Coast Walk or try out snorkelling around Point Danger Marine Sanctuary to see some of the area’s underwater inhabitants.
