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 21st (Sun): enjoy the sand and surf at Bells Beach and then admire all the interesting features of The Great Ocean Road. Keep things going the next day: delve into the lush surroundings at Lorne Beach.

To see traveler tips, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Torquay trip itinerary planner .

Bangkok, Thailand to Torquay is an approximately 15-hour combination of flight and train. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 3 hours traveling from Bangkok to Torquay. Traveling from Bangkok in October, things will get cooler in Torquay: highs are around 24°C and lows about 8°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Mon) so you can travel to Sydney.

Lent iconic status as a result of its famous bridge and opera house, Sydney has a down-to-earth charm that enhances its spectacular setting and functional efficiency.
Visit Bondi Beach and Manly Beach for some beach relaxation. Venture out of the city with trips to Pulpit Rock Lookout (in Blue Mountains National Park) and Featherdale Wildlife Park (in Blacktown). Spend the 27th (Sat) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, let little ones run wild at Cremorne Reserve, wander the streets of The Rocks, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk.

To find maps, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Sydney trip planner.

Getting from Torquay to Sydney by combination of train and flight takes about 6.5 hours. Other options: drive; or take a train. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from Torquay in October, with highs in Sydney at 28°C and lows at 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
