Torquay

Set against the stark but scenic coastline of the Bass Strait--the body of water separating Victoria and Tasmania--Torquay is a prime location for surfing and beach life in general.
Get some historical perspective at Barwon Park and Split Point Lighthouse. Take a break from the city and head to The Great Ocean Road and Bells Beach. There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Torquay Front Beach, walk around Coogoorah Park Nature Reserve, enjoy some diversion at Torquay Foreshore Play Park, and get great views at Point Danger Lookout.
