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.
