Known as the surfing capital of Victoria, you cannot visit the stunning Torquay area without hitting up one or two of the nearby beaches. Some of the more popular spots include Torquay Beach, Bells Beach, Fishermans Beach, Jan Juc Surf Beach, Point Impossible Surf Beach and Southside Beach. Being on the open ocean, many of these beaches are renowned for surfing. Let the kids frolic in the shallows when the weather is warm or build sandcastles.
If the beach isn’t really your thing, there are plenty of other natural attractions for you to enjoy. Pay a visit to the Point Addis Marine National Park, Point Danger Marine Sanctuary or Lorne-Queenscliffe Coastal Reserve. If you like to keep active, give the 44km Surf Coast Walk a go; it commences at Point Impossible, passes through Anglesea and Aireys Inlet, spitting you out at Fairhaven. The walk can be split into smaller sections if desired.
Want to learn more about the history and culture of the region? We definitely recommend a visit to the Australian National Surfing Museum, which celebrates the history of surfing in Australia. See footage of surfers in action and browse the vintage surf memorabilia. If art is more your thing, we recommend checking out Surfcoast Images Gallery, Adam Swann Gallery of Art, Barbara Peakes Studio & Gallery, Salt and Pepper Gallery, or Moongate Studios.
Torquay and the surrounding region is host to a number of events throughout the year, which we highly recommend checking out if you happen to be in town at the right time – be sure to book your accommodation early though!

There are also various markets held most weekends throughout the year.
