"Bustling beachfront suburb"

I love Torquay.
I live in neighbouring Urangan which is excellent because I get to walk to the great restaurants and enjoy the beach and foreshore parks then head home to my quiet house!
Torquay is a typical tourist hub - restaurants, cafes 'beachy' shops, barbecues and kids playgrounds on the foreshore; a great holiday atmosphere most of the year round.
Torquay boasts the best restaurants in Hervey Bay with Coast Restaurant leading the way - casual dining, great food and the best service - you MUST try it if you visit.
Pros
  • Coast Restaurant
  • Walk to shops and restaurants.

"Seaside retreat for the young at heart"

A great seaside location at the start of the Great Ocean Road. With new estates like The Quay and The Sands, it's a maximum 20 minute walk from the edge of Torquay to the centre of town. With a good mix of seniors and young families this is an enjoyable place to live. With a natural beach and parks nearby you couldn't find a better location. Residents love to walk to the shops and restaurants so it is very safe.
Pros
  • Walk to shops and restaurants.
  • Quiet beachside location for most of year.
  • Nice neighbours.
Cons
  • Tourists during Summer months.
