Port Fairy

Port Fairy - Great Ocean Road - Victoria

Situated at one end of the Great Ocean Road visitors are lured to the charming, time-honoured fishing village of Port Fairy. Stroll the historic streets lined with historic bluestone buildings and nineteenth century cottages, authentic stone churches and lush Norfolk pines. Step back in time with a self guided heritage walk taking in the beautifully restored white washed cottages built by whalers and seamen when the town was a hub for the whaling industry and one of the biggest ports in Australia. The fishing port remains as one of the busiest in Victoria today with fishing boats lining the wharf making it a wonderfully lively atmosphere in Summer.

Watch the town come to life in March each year as one of Australia's largest music festivals is celebrated with international blues and folk acts at the Port Fairy Folk Festival, book tickets early if you plan to join the fun. While you're in town be sure to visit the History Centre, Battery Hill, boutiques, antique, art and craft shops housed in stunning specimens of architecture of which more than 50 are classified by the National Trust.
