Torquay is a township in Victoria, Australia, facing Bass Strait and is the gateway to the famous Great Ocean Road. Originally named Spring Creek, the location has always been an attractive location for beach goers. Visitors started enjoying the beach around the 1860s. In 1892 the town was renamed Torquay after the seaside town in England.
