The Great Ocean Road is one of the major tourism icons in Australia. Torquay marks the official start of the Great Ocean Road and the Surf Coast region is home to some of the most spectacular scenery.

What makes The Surf Coast great for conferences?

Many conference-ready activity providers can organise a special team building experience from a round of golf, touring in a convertible, mountain bike riding, horse riding or learn to surf. The Great Ocean Road provides many options for pre or post conference touring.  The Otway Fly Rainforest Zipline or a tour of the SurfWorld Museum could provide a highlight that is talked about for years to come.
