About the Trip

Torquay is the beginning of the Great Ocean Road where beautiful orange sandstone cliffs edge into dark blue waters, and clear sandy beaches entice endless days in the sun and sand. But it’s not all beach, Torquay is a mecca of fine beach side dining and fantastic brunching. We’ve got dolphins, local breweries, surf history, and koalas, it’s a trip everyone will enjoy.

Itinerary

Today is a slow drive to Torquay with lots of stops. First up a visit to the Narana Aboriginal Cultural Centre with an amazing art gallery and cafe for a quick lunch stop.

Then for 2pm we have an afternoon dolphin and seal snorkeling trip to see these majestic local creatures up close. After a hot shower it’s then a 1.5 hour drive on to Torquay.

For your evening there are many hip dining options to choose for dinner and take a beach walk as the sun goes down.

 

Accommodation: Your accommodation is a cosy eco cabin amongst the eucalypt trees and salted winds. Meals are not included but there is a kitchenette on site.

If you’re looking for beachside luxury let us know and we can upgrade you.

It’s an early start to catch the best waves. We have a morning beginner surf lesson included to teach you how to surf! 

*If you’re intermediate to advanced we can hire a guide or include hire and give you the local intel to the best beaches to suit your level.

 

Grab a coffee and head out to explore the coastline’s beautiful beaches, check out the waves at Bells, and walk the Koorie Cultural Walk.

We then have tickets included to the National Surf Museum to see the Bells trophy and learn about the history of Australian surfing.

For the late afternoon we have a beer tasting included at our favourite local craft brewery.

We’ve also managed to get you a discount on takeaway beers too.

After a delicious brunch start heading back to Melbourne we have entry into a local Koala and Wildlife Sanctuary which has been operating for more than 30 years supporting sick and injured native Australian wildlife.

*If you loved the surf, why not start the morning with another! Pre book with us to get a discount on another lesson or hire.
