About the Trip

Torquay is the beginning of the Great Ocean Road, the home of Victorian surfing and has a surf spot for anyone. 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 local breweries, history, and koalas, it’s a trip everyone will enjoy.
