Official Torquay Schoolies Accommodation
Widely recognised as the surf capital of Australia, Torquay does surf culture quite unlike anywhere else. Located just 100km south-west of Melbourne, this stunning seaside town is not only the birthplace place of surf brand giants Quicksilver and Rip Curl, but it is also holds the mantle of being home to the longest running surf competition on Earth - The Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach. Throw in the addition of the unmissable ‘Surf World Museum’ which tells the story of surfing in Australia, from its introduction in 1915 to the dominant way of life that it is for many today, and you know you have a destination that every surf enthusiast needs to experience at least once in their lifetime.
More than just a haven for surfers however, Schoolies Torquay also offers everything else you'd expect from a town used to entertaining tourists on the world stage. Spend your days working up an appetite on the breathtaking coastal hikes, make your way to one of many local lookouts to witness some of Australia’s best surfers tackling bewildering breaks, or embark on a stand up paddle boarding adventure of your own.
Then, once you’ve worked up an appetite, embrace Torquay's culinary scene at one of the local breweries or wine bars and experience delectable local fare inspired by the seaside way of life.
Finally, no mention of Torquay would be quite complete without highlighting that it is the official gateway to one of the most breathtaking drives on Earth, the Great Ocean Road. During your visit, be sure to set aside a day (or two) to explore this stunning stretch of rugged coastline which is strewn with lush rainforest, bewildering waterfalls, epic wildlife and the world heritage listed 12 Apostles.
