Torquay is a major holiday seaside town and the home of Bells Beach and birthplace of iconic brands Rip Curl, Billabong and Quicksilver. Torquay is Victoria's surfing capital where the beach-based culture is at its strongest. Holiday with the family and play on one of the protected beaches, or if you prefer the action of the surf, nearby Jan Juc is a little wilder or for experienced surfers, tackle the big swells of Bells Beach. If you want to see really huge surf you would be best advised to come in Winter or around Easter time. This world famous beach is the venue for the Rip Curl Pro, one of the most sought after titles on the World Championship Tour, which is held every Easter. Some of the biggest names in surfwear and accessories are headquartered here, with huge retail outlets at Surf City Plaza selling everything connected with the sport. Check out the latest from the likes of Rip Curl, Quiksilver, Strapper, Gash and Rojo. And around the corner you can bag yourself a bargain from the Baines Court surf seconds outlets. While at its busiest in the hot summer months, Torquay is a year-round destination offering more than just amazing surf. Capture the spirit of surf culture with a visit to the Surf World Surfing Museum with pictures and hands-on displays. Stroll along sandy beaches beneath towering cliffs or take fine views of the coast from vantage points along the Surf Coast Walk. Don't be afraid of the name, snorkelling around Point Danger Marine Sanctuary is a great way to see some of the diversity of the area's underwater inhabitants. Torquay accommodation is limited so if you intend to holiday here in peak season you should book well in advance.
