Torquay is Australia’s surfing capital, and tucked away in the back of the Tourist Information centre in Surf City, there is more surfing memorabilia than you can shake a surfboard at. The museum truly celebrates surfing and pays tribute to Australia’s surfing heritage and famous beach culture.
Breathtaking historical films show times gone by where people surf iconic beaches. The films show the incredible way that beachwear, surf boards and surfing itself has changed over the years, it was fascinating to see. The old footage was magical to watch.
The museum not only houses an extrodinary collection of surfcraft, it is also home to the Australian Surfing Hall of Fame. There is plenty to see, and lots of activities to keep the children happy! Phew! Playing in the sand pit and decorating a blackboard surfboard seemed to be the favourite! The museum is a must see for everyone; we all had a great time, the children included.
