If you have the urge to discover some of Torquay’s hidden hotspots then you may want to head to Point Addis Marine National Park for some snorkelling, explore the Wathaurong Aboriginal Trail Walk or browse our Night Jar Market – an independent artists festival.
Torquay is also the official start of the Great Ocean Road and the perfect base to explore one of Australia’s most impressive coastlines. You could take the road trip of a lifetime starting in Torquay and driving all the way to the famous 12 Apostles at Port Campbell National Park.
