Torquay

— 2 nights
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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Split Point Lighthouse (in Aireys Inlet) and Lorne (Lorne Beach, Great Ocean Road Memorial Archway, &more). And it doesn't end there: admire all the interesting features of The Great Ocean Road, take in the exciting artwork at Surfcoastimages Gallery, kick back and relax at Bells Beach, and indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas.

To see where to stay, more things to do, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Torquay route maker website.
