A brief summary of Torquay's history...
Torquay is located 104 km south-west of Melbourne and 22 km south of Geelong via the Surf Coast Highway. It is recognised as the eastern starting point of the Great Ocean Road.
While Bells Beach, just a few kilometres down the coast, is the most famous surfing beach in Australia, it is fair to say that Torquay, because it is the largest township in the area, is often seen as the centre of the area's surf culture. Certainly it has the Surf World Museum celebrating Australian surfing culture; it is the place where the two iconic surf brands - Rip Curl and Quicksilver - originated; and it is a place where surfers from all over the world congregate to try their skills in the sublime waves which break on the beaches which stretch south from the town. On another level Torquay is a seaside holiday resort and in recent times it has become residential satellite of Geelong.

It has an indoor yoga and meditation shala and all the amenities you need for a nourishing and comfortable stay.
A brief summary of Noosa's History...
The Noosa region has a rich and unique history, from the first peoples through to the European settlement, and to the present day.
The name Noosa came from the Aboriginal word meaning "shadows" or "shade". This is most probably a reference to the relief the tall forests of the area offered from the sun. The Kabi tribe had been visiting the Noosa area for 40 000 years before Europeans first arrived in the 1800s. The tribe lived as the mouth of the Noosa River to the north, Redcliffe to the south and Cooroy and Nambour to the west.
In 1828, David Bracefell was the first white man to visit the area. Nicknamed Wandi, he had a reputation for regularly escaping his bondage at Moreton Bay and trekking north to Noosa. In 1879 the Noosa Headland was declared Town Reserve. This tract of green forest has remained untouched and is now one of Noosa's most important natural assets, Noosa National Park. The land was gazetted as National Park in 1930, thus guaranteeing its protection in the future. A decade later the town began to develop swiftly gaining popularity as a brief holiday destination as well as a picturesque place to live.
