Accommodation

Great Ocean Road Surf Tours' self-contained accommodation is based in Torquay, the birthplace of Quiksilver and Rip Curl and home to the world famous Bells beach. This is a mecca for surfers and a fantastic place to hang out and learn to surf. You will be staying in their privately owned cabin in the heart of the town and a stone throw from Surf City plaza. The dorm style accommodation sleeps up to six people and is reserved for surf tour participants only.

Linen, a shower towel, and breakfast, as well as tea and coffee, are provided for your duration. In the evenings, there are bars, beaches, and barbecue, only a short stroll away, and all next to a stunning ocean view. Great Ocean Road Surf Tours tries to have separate male and female dorms but this can not always be the case.

The accommodation is a privately owned cabin in a holiday park. You will be able to use the facilities in the park including the swimming pool and spa, tennis courts, barbecue, and jumping pillow. They have self-contained facilities so you can prepare your own meals if you wish. The cabin is complete with a shower and toilet facilities as well as two rooms sleeping four in one and two in the other.

Location

Gateway to the Great Ocean Road, the town of Torquay, Victoria has a rich history in Australian surfing and tourism. Located just over an hour southwest of Melbourne, Torquay is a coastal town popular for holidays and weekend breaks as well as a mecca for all surfers worldwide.

Being the birthplace of surfing giants Rip Curl and Quiksilver, Torquay has its own unique surf culture with the Surf Plaza boasting flagship stores and discount stores to cater for every well-known surf brand around. It is a great place to look for the latest surf and skate fashion or choose from a wide range of new or secondhand surfboards to hire and purchase.

There is also a wide range of cafes and restaurants for all budgets and occasions and importantly is home to the world's first surf world museum in which you can spend hours discovering the wonders of the amazing culture and watch a surf movie. Torquay is home to Bells beach, the local iconic surf spot that entices surfers far and wide. Here the longest running surf contest is held, the Easter Classic, now stop number two on the WSL world tour where every Easter you can witness the world's top elite surfers battle it out to ring the famous Bell trophy.

Being one of the most consistent and least crowded places around Australia to surf, you can find something to suit all levels. From the long point breaks of Bells and Winki to the beach breaks of Jan Juc and Torquay, surf spots stretch nearly the entire length of the 350 kilometers stretch of the Great Ocean Road.
