If you love the beach, and want surfing in Victoria, you will love the Great Ocean Road region.
Torquay has the most popular surfing beach in Victoria and is known as the home of Australian surfing as well as the official start to surfing the Great Ocean Road. The best surf destinations include Torquay, Anglesea, Aireys Inlet and Lorne, which collectively are known as the Surf Coast. Other top surfing (Vic) destinations are the Australian National Surfing Museum, and surf shopping in Torquay.
If you’re looking for a surfing beach in Victoria try a trip to Bells Beach – home to the annual Rip Curl Pro event. Or you might want to visit Johanna, where the Bells Beach Surf Classic competition is at times moved to (when the westerly facing Johanna Beach picks up swell that misses Bells and the Surf Coast).
