The staff were so friendly and helpful and took the time to give us loads of advice about places to stop and things to see along the Great Ocean Road. Really enjoyed our visit and the ladies who helped us are an absolute credit to Torquay.

Dont miss the artists window!
Jan. 2020
The Torquay Information Centre is a great place to get some information about the local area and attractions. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. There are lots of locally made souvenirs, such as candles, tshirts etc on sale. A highlight is the Local artist Showcase window. Every six weeks a new artist is showcased with work for sale. Support the local artists if you are looking for a unique gift.

My friend and I came to visit this information center to ask the direction to Erskine falls. The volunteers are very helpful to provide us with information how to get to Erskine falls and other falls and more places to visit.

The info centre was fantastic. The volunteers had so much knowledge and useful tips to pass on. Trina was wonderful. Maps given, useful info provided. Worth a stop on your way down the GOR. So glad we stopped by.

Fun and interesting spot to visit just for the friendly chatter.

We talked with Julie, a very informative volunteer, at the site. We almost hated to leave because of the laughter and a fun we had. There was great discussions on the best lattes in the the area and how many it was possible to drink in a day. All the staff were friendly and seemed to be enjoying themselves.

This is a must when arriving in Torquay without an itinerary. The staff are friendly, interested in their customers, knowledgeable about the area, and able to make great suggestions and give solid advice to those new to the region. It is also a lovely gift shop with plenty to browse through, as well as being the entrance to the Surfing Museum. Located in the Surfcoast Surf shopping precinct on the main road into Torquay it is easy to find and offers ample parking.

Above and beyond helpful - Great Ocean Road aid
Feb. 2019 • Couples
Visiting the Great Ocean Road, my wife and I did much of our planning via TripAdvisor, travel blogs and video references. When the opportunity came along to visit the Torquay Visitor Information Center as we departed Melbourne for Port Campbell, this was an impromptu stop. As much as we had mapped out and planned our trip, the 20 minutes of 1 on 1 guiding and advisement paid dividends. I did not catch her name, but the employee who assisted us literally walked through our plans and added valuable insight and suggestions. Much of the literature is free, I think only detailed topography maps were charged. We walked away with great ideas and maps on communities such as Port Campbell, Apollo Bay, and individual attractions along the way.

There is also an attached gift shop, a great selection and prices were on par with what you'd find in the tourist shops. We actually thought the quality of items here was better vs. several shops we visited along the GOR. There are several different framable GOR themed prints here, we brought home the blue and white lettered 8x10 that lists all the major towns along the GOR. Plenty of nearby parking and a fantastic recommendation on coffee / sandwiches to go at the nearby Mikro Coffee. Great stop, would recommend to others spending any amount of time along the GOR.
