Torquay Tourism and Facilities Project
A project to deliver new public facilities at Torquay's main surf beach (part of the Great Ocean Road Renewal Program).
One of four projects funded through the Great Ocean Road Renewal Program - a three-year, $1.35 million program. The program has delivered four projects, each critically important in their own right, and is supported by funding from the Australian Government.
The new and improved facilities were designed to enhance beachgoers' enjoyment and experiences of Torquay's most popular beach, which has a tourism history spanning more than 100 years and faces ever-increasing recreational pressures.
The new 'Third Wave Kiosk' at the Torquay Surf Beach was officially opened in December 2011 signifying the completion of $480,000 of works to improve the standards, service levels and accessibility of facilities at the world-renowned Torquay Surf Beach.
GORCC, together with Darren Cheeseman MP, Federal Member for Corangamite, officially opened the kiosk which followed the refurbishment of the Surf Beach Toilet Block, and was undertaken in conjunction with the refurbishment of the existing green dressing shed building.
