Torquay
Set against the stark but scenic coastline of the Bass Strait--the body of water separating Victoria and Tasmania--Torquay is a prime location for surfing and beach life in general.
On the 12th (Fri), visit a coastal fixture at Split Point Lighthouse and then admire all the interesting features of The Great Ocean Road.

For other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, read Torquay trip planner .

Melbourne to Torquay is an approximately 1.5-hour car ride. You can also take a train. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in October, and nighttime lows around 8°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Fri) to allow enough time to drive back home.
