Shopping in Torquay, Victoria - What The Locals Don’t Want You to Know

There’s plenty to do in and around the beautiful region of Torquay and the Surf Coast for those that enjoy a bit of retail therapy on their holiday break.

Famous for the surf shops at Surf City Plaza including Rip Curl, Quicksilver and Billabong, Torquay also boasts a few hidden treasures.

We convinced the locals to share a few secrets:

Wander Through The Cowrie Road Market

The market is full of unique items from designer jewelry through to hand crafted garden ornaments, local produce and lively entertainment. 

The market is held on the third Sunday of the month during September through to April at Elephant Walk, The Esplanade – a short walk from Serenity townhouses.

Grab a Bargain at The Baines Beach Surf Factory Outlet

Here you will find the latest surf fashion and apparel from big name brands such as Rip Curl, at a fraction of the retail price.
