THE NEIGHBORHOOD, overview
Torquay is just a gorgeous place for a relaxing weekend or short Holiday , its extremely peaceful and a really nice vibe , lots of shops and cafes to stroll to in all directions .. plus the main Torquay beach is at the end of street and the surf beach is a walk to the right , is walking distance one way and the other the other way .Everything is in walking distance which makes the location so good a lovely quiet peaceful street , plus not far from the famous Bells Beach or take a nice drive along the Great Ocean Rd to Lorne and Further, Golf courses, Horse Ridding , pet friendly beach.
from Airport you could get bus to city , train to Geelong , then bus to Torquay get off at bottom of my street and walk. I have had guests that have caught the train and bus to stay just need to co ordinate with bus at geelong , but its great as the bus stops at the beach end of my street so pretty easy re public transport if you up for the fun of it !! And i believe when the Bells beach surf comp on there is a bus to the comp .
