Bells Beach, Torquay. Victoria. Australia

BELLS BEACH - VICTORIA

Bells Beach, Torquay. Victoria
Best known for its quality surf, Bells Beach is one of Australia’s best surfing beaches. Big, long walls of surf excitement, Bells Beach is a must do for any surfers visiting Australia. Each year at Easter, Bells Beach puts on the ‘Rip Curl Pro’ surf contest, for the best surfers in the world.

Torquay is where the Great Ocean Road begins its journey westward. Torquay is the surfing capital of Australia and some of the finest boardriders in the world flock to Bells Beach every year for the annual Easter Classic. Surfworld in Torquay is Australia's only surfing museum and Hall of Fame.

As well as the wild surf, there are popular family beaches and picnic areas on the Esplanade and Fishermens Beach on Zeally Bay.

From Torquay the road heads gently inland but the ocean is never far away. If you can't see it, the strong smell of salt in the air serves as a constant reminder.
