Bells Beach

Victoria's most famous surf beach, Bells Beach, near Torquay, is world renowned for its surf breaks and the long standing annual surfing event, the Rip Curl Pro. 

Leaving the surfing to the professionals, we were more than happy to just watch the action from the viewing platform on the clifftop...

And if surfing isn't your thing, you can strap yourself into a paraglider and take a running jump off the clifftop at nearby Southside Beach. The runway juts out at a a pretty spectacular spot for soaring above the sea, allowing the bravehearted to take a flying leap  into the great beyond, with a bird's eye view of all the action below.
