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.
Kick off your visit on the 26th (Wed): take in the dramatic scenery at Erskine Falls and then cruise along The Great Ocean Road. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: make a trip to Teddy's Lookout, don't miss a visit to Split Point Lighthouse, and then kick back and relax at Eastern Beach Reserve.
