    Torquay Victoria Surf World Museum to Torquay Back Beach

    A surf culture walk starting from Surf World, past the surf industry (hands in the concrete outside Rip Curl) along Boston Road (Rip Curls first factory) via Bell Street down Surf Beach Drive to the Torquay Back Beach (site of the 1956 surf carnival during olympics and introduction of surfing into Torquay). Torquay is the birthplace of huge surf companies like Rip Curl and Quiksilver but all around the Surf City Plaza there is a plethora of smaller companies that produce stylish clothes, wetsuits and boards for international and national markets. Surf World is recognised as the world's largest Surfing /Beach Culture Museum and houses the Australian Surfing Hall Of Fame as part of its comprehensive surfing displays. First opened in December 1993, an initiative of Surfing Australia, Surfworld was recognised in 1994 as one of “The most significant centres of world surfing heritage” by the International Surfing Association.

    Point Danger Foreshore Trail (ANZAC Memorial)

    Along the Torquay foreshore to the sundial including historical plaques, Lane memorial, tree carvings, childrens playground with liberty swing, Gilbert Street (for a coffee!), Two Bays & Scammel Anchor. Point Danger is found at the meeting point of the surf and front beaches. Once considered a navigational hazard to sailing ships, it is also very popular for sightseeing and shore walks and is visited by large numbers of people. Kite and windsurfing is also very popular on windy afternoons.
