Great Ocean Road

  • Lookout at Torquay, Great Ocean Road, Victoria, Australia

Dose up on surf culture at Torquay, the home of Bells Beach and the birthplace of iconic brands Rip Curl and Quicksilver.

Play with the family on one of the protected beaches, tackle the waves of nearby Jan Juc, or launch out into the big swells of Bells Beach – the venue of the world famous Rip Curl Pro.

Though busiest during the summer, Torquay is a year-round destination. Delve into surf’s rebel culture at the Surf World Surfing Museum, stock up on the latest gear at Surf City Plaza, or snare a bargain from the seconds outlets around the corner.
