Torquay Surfing Culture On Display
17 July 2015 - Great Ocean Road
A visit to the Torquay Surfing Museum, also referred to as the Australian National Surfing Museum or the SurfWorld Museum provides a real surfing experience.
There was a time in Torquay when the surf industry was just a few blokes making surfboards and rubber suits to keep themselves warm in the water. Now, Torquay is considered to be the surfing capital of Australia. The Surf Museum looks at the changes that have taken place in surfing culture and heritage over the years.
It’s a vibrant Museum with heaps on display, and it’s worth a look, even if you are not a surfer. Even the kids really enjoy it.
The Museum is located in Beach Road, close to the iconic surf shops in Torquay such as Rip Curl, Quicksilver, Roxy and DC. A bargain can be found at the factory outlets around the corner in Baines Court.
