Two people look out to the ocean from a view platform, off the boardwalk along the Torquay shoreline.

Torquay is just one hour’s drive from Melbourne and the official starting point of the Great Ocean Road.

This seaside town is world-famous for its surf culture and is home to iconic surf brands Rip Curl and Quicksilver. Torquay boasts some of the best waves on the Surf Coast and is the official host of the Rip Curl Pro, an annual surfing event held over Easter at world-famous Bells Beach.

For families and less experienced swimmers, Torquay offers several sheltered beaches. The Torquay Back Beach is suitable for surfers and experienced swimmers, patrolled by the Torquay Surf Lifesaving Club during the warmer months.

This vibrant hub has much to offer, from cultural events, diverse food options, several supermarkets and of course the surf outlets so you can shop up a storm! Torquay is the perfect location for a relaxing weekend escape, or an action-packed getaway.

If you are planning a weekend away or family getaway, Torquay Foreshore Caravan Park is the ideal holiday destination to get to know the Great Ocean Road region and make some unforgettable memories.
