Local Attractions

Things to do in Torquay, Jan Juc and surrounds.

The Surf Coast and Great Ocean Road are famed for their spectacular beaches and coastal scenery. From the infamous Bells Beach, to windswept and remote stretches of sand, to family-friendly local beaches, you will be spoilt for choice.

There’s more on offer than sand and saltwater, however. The Surf Coast offers a wide range of activities, to satisfy every traveller.

Choose from:

  • Fishing
  • Cliff-top walks
  • Mountain bike rides
  • Golf
  • Tiger moth rides
  • Skydiving
  • Wineries
  • Restaurants and cafes
  • Shopping
  • Day Trips

You may want to embark on a day trip to one of the many seaside towns along the Great Ocean Road – Anglesea, Aireys Inlet, Lorne or Apollo Bay.

Or you may head in the other direction, to explore the Bellarine Peninsula and its diverse landscape.

For more information we suggest visiting the Torquay Visitor Information Centre.

Chances are, once you step inside Deśa Retreat, you’ll never want to leave the cosy natural Jan Juc environment.

  • Emma's place is perfect in every way. A beautiful, new and modern villa that has been built and styled with exceptional materials and taste. It blends with and encompasses the surrounding natural environment seamlessly, creating a natural, warm, peaceful and authentic space. The villa conveniently splits into two spaces so that smaller or larger groups can be accommodated. The facilities are modern and the beds are unbelievable comfortable! The location is perfect - a quiet and secluded beach and bush setting only a few moments drive from town. Emma is the perfect host - warm, welcoming and helpful. We can't wait for our next visit!
