Walk back in time with Torquay’s History Walk

Take a stroll around Torquay, visiting 28 historic markers and discover the rich history of this iconic Victorian town on the Torquay History Walking Trail.


The Torquay History Walking Trail was developed by the Torquay & District Historical Society to preserve old Torquay’s architecture, surf culture and many more iconic locations of significance. Starting at the Colonel Price House in Charles Lane the walk passes the Torquay & District Historical Society, winds through town before continuing along the Esplanade to Point Danger.

Learn about Torquay’s name change back in 1892, discover the town’s original homes, memorials and points of interest. Collect your trail map from the Torquay Visitor Centre or download the Torquay History Trail Walk here.
