Torquay is a thriving coastal town located 21-kilometres south of Geelong. The town is famous for its surf beaches, particularly Bells Beach, and the Great Ocean Road (which starts at Torquay). Since 1962, the annual Rip Curl Pro surfing competition has been held at iconic Bells Beach. Torquay is popular with tourists and schoolies, who flock to the beaches over summer. Torquay is also the spiritual home of iconic surf wear brands, Rip Curl and Quiksilver. Given Torquay’s rich surfing heritage, it’s no surprise that the local economy is driven by retail, tourism and recreation. Residents either work in these sectors, or in places like Geelong and Melbourne.  


Torquay is accessible from Geelong via the Surf Coast Highway. In the absence of a direct train line, V/Line runs a bus service from Torquay to Geelong.


Torquay is home to Woolworths, Coles and IGA. Aldi can be found in neighbouring areas, such as Grovedale and Highton. Surf City Plaza on the Great Ocean Road is a shopping centre devoted to surfing retailers, including Rip Curl, Quiksilver and Billabong; it also houses the Surf World Museum.


Torquay has a number of established primary and secondary schools, including Torquay State School, Torquay North Primary School (undergoing refurbishment by builders Torquay), Saint Therese Catholic Primary School, Torquay College, Lisieux Catholic Primary School and Surf Coast Secondary College. There’s also a Steiner School at nearby Freshwater Creek.
