Located around 2 hours south west of Melbourne, Torquay is a peaceful beach town that truly comes alive during the Schoolies period – especially when you stay at an official Schoolies resort! This is an awesome place to hang out, relax and party hard, and a great way to get out of the city without having to travel too far.
Torquay is considered to be a safe alternative for Schoolies Week whilst still containing all the elements that makes Schoolies so memorable. The beaches here are epic, with picture perfect natural surroundings, and for those avid surfers (or beginners who want to give it a try), this is a world class surfing spot. Hit the waves like a pro, or book yourself in for a surfing lesson and see what all the fuss is about and you will most likely leave with a new obsession. The beaches here are fully patrolled from mid-November onwards, providing a safe location to try your skills out (while exercising common sense of course).
As with other destinations along the Great Ocean Road, there is plenty to see and do around Torquay. Famous beaches include Bells Beach, Jan Juc and Point Impossible, with a range of water sports available, including snorkeling the reef at Point Danger Marine Sanctuary. The Surf Coast Walk is a great way to get out and explore on your own, while there are a range of tour options along Great Ocean Road. For surfers or beach lovers, Surf City Plaza offers a fantastic shopping experience for all surf and beachwear brands.
For most of the year, Torquay is a quiet place, so booking with an official provider like Schoolies Club is the way to go to make sure that you are located near the rest of the party people. We have official Schoolies accommodation so that you can party with other school leavers without getting in the way of the everyday lives of locals.
