We would love to read your feedback

Torquay Museum Without Walls is approaching its third birthday. Over the three years we believe we have provided wonderful access to the Torquay district history. We have done this through our website, social media and the HISTORY MATTERS magazine.

The committee would love to hear your thoughts on how we are going, where we can improve and what you believe we do really well. Please help us by clicking on the following link and completing the survey for us. Your feedback will be really valuable as we plan the years ahead.


Thank you from all of us at Torquay Museum Without Walls.




Torquay – Fun in the Sun

Stone family home movie of summer holidays in Torquay. Their house was located in Gilbert Street where IGA is now. Originally living in the old Anderson house, they later built a larger holiday home to accommodate all the family. The movie clip goes with the Gilbert Street story in the current edition of HISTORY MATTERS magazine.
