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.

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
