Point Impossible Reef is an interesting diving and snorkelling site east of Torquay and west of Breamlea and Barwon Heads on Victoria's Surf Coast, facing south-east into Bass Strait. It's on the eastern outskirts of Torquay, about a 30 minute drive from Geelong.

Point Impossible is a low, calcarenite point, capped by 10 metre high foredunes and bordered by the mouth of Thompson Creek. The gravel road from Torquay runs out to the point, where there is a large car park. Point Impossible Beach at beach marker 52W, lies in front of the car park and forms the western boundary of Thompson Creek. A foreshore reserve and the road back the 4.5 kilometre long Whites Beach, with car parks and access tracks across the dune. The Point Impossible Reef dive site is on the western side of Point Impossible at beach marker 53W. Further east along The Esplanade is an official Optional Dress (nude) Beach with car parking at beach marker 55W. Further west again is Whites Beach at beach marker 56W. The beaches all face south-east and are protected to the south by Point Danger, and along the central-eastern section by extensive rock reefs. As a result, waves average 1 metre at the beach and usually produce a continuous, shallow bar only cut by rips during and following high seas.
