Outlets are where they discount end of season lines & seconds. Having shopped here probably 20 times the bargains vary. You have to be realistic this is why they are outlets. You can find fantastic bargains here at different times. Things like T-shirts don't date so they are always a good pick up. My other favourite is men's hoodies or... More

The prices were no cheaper than other places I can go to closer to... More

I found nothing there. Not many shops were opened when we were there, probably due to the fact that it was an afternoon in winter. There is no point to go there.

Hi all, I thought I would write to help to clarify a few things over the surf factory outlets in Torquay. Firstly, Surf City Plaza is shopping precinct/area dedicated to surfing and includes the museum SurfWorld. However, the surf factory outlets are are actually dotted all around this precinct, mixed in with the normal retail stores. The popular 'fashionable surf... More

Stopped here during the school holidays with family found the shops expensive and most of the clothing was seconds. Wouldn't bother. The beaches in winter were enjoyable as was a very run down Taylor Park.

Surf City Plaza is nothing more than a collection of average surf fashion stores. While many of these may be so-called "factory stores", their selection is narrow and most prices are MSRP Australia (which are much higher than average street prices in Europe and North America). Some shops have a large number of boards. Close examination reveals these to consist... More

Don't forget the surfing museum. Surfworld. Fantastic exhibition that covers everything from the first day of surfing in australia right through to the modern era. Very reasonable entry fee of $10.

In the centre of Torquay, you will find Surf City Plaza located on the Surf Coast Highway. They have a great variety of retail shops with all the big brands- Rip Curl, Quicksilver, Billabong etc. Wet suits, T-shirts, swim wear, surf boards, sun glasses, watches, bags and the list goes on. Great for bargain hunters too- go to Baines Court... More
