Everyone knows that backpackers love a bargain, and there's plenty to be found just around the corner at the Ripcurl and Quiksilver factory outlets!

Bells Beach is in a national park area about 10 minutes drive from Torquay. There are beautiful walking tracks from Torquay to Bells Beach. Well known for amazing surf and host to the Ripcurl Pro surfing competition. Although you might want to tell your friends you've surfed Bells, this is only advisable if you are an experienced surfer!

Location Information

Located in Torquay, Australia's surf capital and gateway to the Great Ocean Road, Bells Beach Backpackers is the perfect place to get a real feel for aussie life!

Ripcurl and Quiksilver began here and therefore Torquay remains home to their flagship stores but more importantly their factory outlet shops!

If you want to get amongst the action, surfboards can be hired for as little as $25 per day or try a lesson for $65. If you'd prefer to look at the water rather than be in it, there are beautiful walking tracks which hug the coastline to Bells Beach and beyond!

All the town's attractions are within 10 minutes walk from the hostel so no day should ever be to stressful while staying at Bells Beach Backpackers!
