Torquay is situated just 20 minutes south of Geelong at the beginning of the Great Ocean Road. The coastal views and great surfing beaches of Torquay and Jan Juc are amongst the very best in the world.
Torquay has always been a drawcard for holiday makers and there are photo postcards of Torquay in the 1940’s- looking just as attractive as it does today! While the population has soared to around 15, 000 Torquay retains its relaxed beach and surf lifestyle, attracting young and old. Casual cafes and restaurants abound; there are lovely parks, fantastic walks. Torquay’s traditional “old town” is flat and easy to get around.
Mobility scooter users find the footpaths, and shopping in the large centres and smaller shops and boutiques around town pretty easy and there are eight RECHARGE points around town. Resident Susan says “I’ve had to use a mobility scooter now for the last six years.
I’ve always loved Torquay and now have a small unit here after moving from Geelong. Being just off Munday Street means I’m not too far from the shops. I love going out for fish and chips; riding my scooter along the front beach foreshore path or riding around Taylor Park, which is always so relaxing.”
