BUILD CASTLES OF SAND AND EXPLORE THE ROCK POOLS SPYING ON URCHINS AND CRABS.
Port Fairy is the Great Ocean Road's beautiful bluestone town that has been frozen in time - but it has for a long time been a quietly popular holiday resort for those in the know.
With more than 50 buildings classified by the National Trust and many fine examples of 1800s architecture Port Fairy is the perfect holiday spot for history buffs. Follow one of the historic walking trails and discover charming, fully restored white-washed cottages built by whalers and seamen beside Georgian-style merchants' homes and grand public buildings. Learn about the local maritime history on the Port Fairy Maritime and Shipwreck Heritage Walk.
MUSIC, MUSIC EVERYWHERE!
Each year, thousands make the trip to the wonderful Port Fairy Folk Festival, one of Australia's largest music festivals held annually in March.
The entire town embraces and celebrates the arts - so put this one on your list and make sure that you are there to feel the joy that such an iconic event brings!
GREAT FOOD, GREAT WINE
When people ask 'how was your holiday to Port Fairy', the first thing you will say is ‘the food was amazing!’. It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the fine food and wine on offer at one of the many great pubs, cafes or restaurants.
For a sample of the best of the region's produce why not pop in to the renowned Merrijig Kitchen Inn, Time and Tide High Tea by the High Sea, or Limestone Gallery and Cafe.
You know the town has found its way right to your heart via the stomach and you will be back. Port Fairy is just one of those places.
DON'T FORGET YOUR CLUBS!
If you're planning a visit, pack the clubs and play a round (or two) at the Port Fairy Golf Course.
The golf course overlooks the rugged coastline of the Great Ocean Road - and ranked 34th in Australia's top 100 golf courses.
Clubhouse facilities including bar and catering are available along with a stocked Pro Shop.
