WAKE UP TO THE COLOURS OF SURF COAST: A 3 DAY ITINERARY

by GREAT OCEAN ROAD

Sunrise on the Surf Coast is a hands down must experience, and the best way to experience a stunning sunrise, is by making yourself a local for the weekend.

Continuing your day of colours by exploring the markets for local produce, art, homewares, furniture and plants, or the array of shopping within reach. For everything surf, Torquay is your place to be with Surf City Plaza and Baines Crescent surf seconds. For boutiques and homewares, you can’t go past Mountjoy Parade in Lorne. For quaint little bookshops and art, you’ll need to make a stop in Aireys Inlet too.
