Our Story

What was once known as Torquay Beach Hire, Aquavue was created in 2002 by the Burch Family. Larry and Mel put over 20 years of hard work, love, persistence and determination into building Aquavue and making it the food, beverage and tourism destination that it still is today. Although they faced many challenges such as natural disasters, pandemics and illnesses, there were also many exciting moments such as major growth and renovations. In August 2022, Larry sadly passed away after battling Prostate Cancer for many years. In November 2023, a new chapter begins. Lauren (Larry's daughter) and Jayden Christie made the leap and purchased the family business with big dreams, vibrant energy and new ideas.
