A tale of beach and beer
Many coastal tales are told with the key ingredients being beach and beer (hopefully in that order). The more beer the bigger the wave was, right?
Blackman’s Brewery is right in Torquay town, inviting you to relax and enjoy the selection of their award winning craft beers brewed on site. The all-day kitchen is open whenever beers are being served with a share style, beer-food menu. Out the back, is the brewery equipment, a Canadian made setup showcasing beautiful copper and stainless steel.

Plenty to wine about
Torquay is surrounded by wineries opening their doors to the general public for tastings and gourmet treats. Characterised by the strong flavours produced from the typically sandy loam and limestone land and cool, dry climate, the region grows a variety of reds and white including the odd sparkling. Base yourself in Torquay and take a coastal wine tour in beautiful surrounds.
