"Disappointed"

My mum has paid 1950 to stay here for 2 weeks, not even worth the money. Very disappointed . The nieghbours are up parting smoking weed and constant arguing at back courtyard and at front. Very dirty and disgusting inside the unit. Defiantly be demanding my mother to get her money back.

"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.

"Seaside retreat for the young at heart"

A great seaside location at the start of the Great Ocean Road. With new estates like The Quay and The Sands, it's a maximum 20 minute walk from the edge of Torquay to the centre of town. With a good mix of seniors and young families this is an enjoyable place to live. With a natural beach and parks nearby you couldn't find a better location. Residents love to walk to the shops and restaurants so it is very safe.
Pros
  • Walk to shops and restaurants.
  • Quiet beachside location for most of year.
  • Nice neighbours.
Cons
  • Tourists during Summer months.
