"Stunningly beautiful, peaceful, friendly"

This is the best place on Earth. I searched for months looking at the best weather in Australia and settled on Torquay in Hervey Bay. It never gets too hot or too cold. Southeast trade winds cool in summer and northerlies keep in warm in winter. 60,000 people love here but only a handful of them go to the beach. Everyone is friendly and the beach is very safe with no rips being a Bay, I love swimming there all year round.

"Bustling beachfront suburb"

I love Torquay.
I live in neighbouring Urangan which is excellent because I get to walk to the great restaurants and enjoy the beach and foreshore parks then head home to my quiet house!
Torquay is a typical tourist hub - restaurants, cafes 'beachy' shops, barbecues and kids playgrounds on the foreshore; a great holiday atmosphere most of the year round.
Torquay boasts the best restaurants in Hervey Bay with Coast Restaurant leading the way - casual dining, great food and the best service - you MUST try it if you visit.
Pros
  • Coast Restaurant
  • Walk to shops and restaurants.
