Boasting a spectacular location along the pristine shores of Zeally Bay Beach on Victoria’s Surf Coast, the Wyndham Resort Torquay is 90 minutes from Melbourne and enjoys stunning ocean views. Torquay itself is a vibrant seaside town that is the official starting point of the magnificent Great Ocean Road. The Resort has an outdoor ‘lagoon’ and an indoor heated pool, and plenty to see and do in the nearby areas, making it a great holiday destination.

Polio Australia would like to acknowledge GlaxoSmithKline for once more providing generous assistance to the post-polio community through their support of this Retreat.
