All About Torquay

Torquay is a spectacular seaside city known for its world-renowned surf spots and scenic beaches, including Whites Beach, Point Impossible Beach, and Torquay Beach, all of which have walking paths, picnic areas, and vast stretches of sand. The city, located approximately 22 kilometres south of Geelong and 100 kilometres southwest of Melbourne, is the easternmost point along Australia’s famed Great Ocean Road, and is the traditional home to the Wathaurong Aboriginals.

The walking paths near these shores offer picturesque views with seaside eateries and cafes along the way. In addition to its array of beaches and green spaces, Torquay offers golf courses, spas, surf shops, restaurants, a brewpub, and art galleries for those looking for some out-of-the-water entertainment.

The best time to stay in a holiday rental in Torquay

Torquay’s Mediterranean climate brings many of its visitors in during the spring and summer months when the temperatures are warm, and the area’s beaches can be enjoyed to their fullest. Many visitors come to Torquay year-round for its surfing spots, as well as its surfing tournaments, the largest being a contest at Bells Beach, just south of Torquay. Thousands of spectators and competitors come out for the contest every year, which is held in early autumn. Winter introduces some wet and chilly weather, so travellers visiting during these months should remember their woollies.
