Torquay is approximately 100km from Melbourne (1hr 24 mins) and Aireys Inlet 122km (1hr 40 mins) from Melbourne. Take the Princes Highway (M1) to Geelong then turn left onto the Surf Coast Highway (B100) at Grovedale. Follow the highway all the way into Torquay. Turn right off the highway onto Darian Road, then right again onto The Esplanade.
To get to Aireys Inlet take the Great Ocean Road (B100) out of Torquay passing through Anglesea and continue on past the top shops in Aireys Inlet until you reach the lighthouse on your left. The skate park is located a few hundred metres further, on the left of the Great Ocean Road at 22-26 Inlet Crescent, opposite the ‘bottom shops’.
