Make Memories in Port Fairy

Known as the most prominent festival town of Australia, Port Fairy has a tendency to make a strong impression on visitors. It's one of the oldest port towns in Victoria and the 19th century charm beams through the town with its wide, cottage-lined streets. However, these cottages are not the only accommodation options available, and just because Port Fairy offers historic charm does not mean that the town is not up-to-date. While visiting, luxe beach houses, modern townhouses and other rental opportunities provide the perfect home away from home for any number of guests.

Coastal Fun

Set along the Great Ocean Road, Port Fairy boasts plenty of beaches and beautiful landscapes. As Port Fairy's commerce is mostly based on the fishing industry, there are many fishing boats passing through on a daily basis, and you have the opportunity to watch them unload their daily catches while walking along the wharf. If you tire of walking, hop on one of the many cruises that leave the wharf and tour the surrounding waters. During migration and breeding season there are even whale watching tours.

For the more adventurous travellers, Port Fairy is home to a surf and SUP school that caters to students of all skill levels. Head out on the waters by yourself or with a guided paddleboard tour to discover what’s offshore.

A Haven for History Buffs

If you enjoy classic 19th century architecture, Port Fairy is the destination for you. Spend the day walking along the heritage trails, and get up close and personal with the over 50 historic buildings in Port Fairy that are classified by the National Trust. During your walk, make sure to stop at the history centre for further information about the buildings on your tour. Take a look at Port Fairy's maritime history by undertaking another route on your walk and joining the Port Fairy Maritime and Shipwreck Heritage Walk.

Fun for the Whole Family

One of the most popular attractions in Port Fairy is Griffiths Island. Free to the public, Griffiths Island offers extensive walking trails with coastal views and a historic lighthouse, which you can tour and climb. If you are looking for a unique place to spend a few hours, go to the Codrington Wind Farm, read about their project, take in the scenery and enjoy the massive windmills at work. Venture just 14 kilometres from Port Fairy for a barbecue or scenic walk through Victoria's first national park; who knows, you might even spot some of the indigenous wildlife. Back in Port Fairy, there are barbecues and playground equipment along the river, allowing the whole family to make memories.

Appreciate Local Culture

Each year, Port Fairy plays host to many festivals and events, which makes this holiday destination lively no matter the season. The Port Fairy Folk Festival is a way for visitors to discover music from all over the world, and the Port Fairy Spring Music Festival promises a performance for every taste. Photography walks are common and allow photographers of all levels to capture their own piece of Port Fairy. The Moyneyana Festival offers live performers, fireworks and children's entertainment.

While festivals are one way to get in touch with Port Fairy, another way is to visit the many local stores scattered throughout the downtown area. Fun boutiques, antique stores are craft shops are all available for your perusal. Visit Eclectic Designs Glass Blowing Studio to see breathtaking glass pieces being blown before your eyes. In addition, art galleries found in Port Fairy display the works of Australian artists.

What to Pack

The weather in Port Fairy is comfortable throughout the year, so only a long-sleeved garment is required in the winter months. If you are looking for a summer holiday, book your stay between the months of December and March. There is no bad time to visit the beautiful coastal town of Port Fairy.

Fantastic Heritage Cottage very close to a park, beds and the beach.

5 of 5
Elizabeth Margaret Brady Cottage was an excellent choice with fantastic support from the owners. Very well fitted out with everything for the two of us. Great lounge with comfy chairs and a gas log fire which we needed in July. Functional kitchen and a large bathroom and duel basins. A short walk to the park and the beach which displayed beautiful sunrises and sunsets. With a washing machine a short trip to the BP Servo for dryers we left with fresh clothes for our next town. Port Fairy is a delight and we were very pleased with our choice of accomodation. Damien answered all of our questions and gave us some great tips for places to visit. Next time down this way from Queensland we may try the Bank House at Koroit (also owned by Damien and Adele) but we do love Port Fairy so it will be a tough decision.

Lot of Character in a Small Package

5 of 5
Loved our stay. Dog had a huge yard and a covered patio at night. The property has been renovated with some little bits still to go (no means upset the stay and limited to bathroom in places). Great shower, very quiet and loved the bed. Also had wifi and Stan or Netflix tv, cant remember but it was good. Very close to town and no street noise at all. Tim showed us around the old church they are doing up. Thanks. Oh eggs bread milk etc was a great touch thanks again.
