Pair adventure with indulgence on the Great Ocean Road. Spend the weekend immersing yourself in fresh sea water, saluting the sun as it rises over a sparkling ocean, nourishing your body with locally grown organic wholefoods and spending the afternoon in the capable hands of world-class therapists at award winning day spas.
Whether you’re looking for an afternoon indulgence or an all-inclusive retreat the Great Ocean Road will have you blissed out in no time.
Exhilarate the senses by immersing yourself in the waves with a Torquay Surfing Academy surf lesson. Their motto is ‘Real surfers teaching real surfing’ so whether you’re a beginner or an experienced surfer looking for some pro tips they have you covered.
The Surf Academy is located just a two-minute walk from the beach – but the real schooling happens in the surf. In under two minutes you’ll have your wetsuit on, foam board in hand and be warming up with an on-sand demo at Cosy Corner before hitting the waves. For two hours the surf coaches are in the water with you giving you a little extra push when needed. You’ll be on your feet in no time!
Spacious and beautifully designed with every convenience at your fingertips the award-winning RACV Resort Torquay has everything you need to relax and unwind.

No wonder it’s in the Trip Advisor’s Top 10 Best Hotels in Australia list.
Warm up after your surf lesson with a well-earned bathing session at RACV, One Spa.
