At Torquay Museum Without Walls we offer a dynamic and constantly-evolving information centre through the digital world. It is the museum of the future, where landmarks, stories, digital images and social media will integrate to provide accurate, accessible anywhere and anytime access to history of the area.

Torquay is a township in Victoria, Australia, facing Bass Strait and is the gateway to the famous Great Ocean Road. Originally named Spring Creek, the location has always been an attractive location for beach goers.  Visitors started enjoying the beach around the 1860’s. In 1892 the town was renamed Torquay after the seaside town in England.

Torquay is famous for its surf beaches with the world famous Bells Beach on the outskirts. Many of the worlds most famous surf companies had their origins in Torquay.
