Fairhaven, with a population of around 360 people is located on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria.

Fairhaven is a popular holiday destination, with many homes being used for pet friendly accommodation, and almost all Fairhaven homes have spectacular ocean views.

Fairhaven adjoins Fairhaven Beach, which at 6km long is the longest beach on the Great Ocean Road. Fairhaven is separated from adjoining Aireys Inlet by the Painkalac Creek, and in recent years Fairhaven and Aireys Inlet are growing closer to each other.

Fairhaven Beach is a popular surfing destination, and the Fairhaven Surf Lifesaving Club has been described as Fairhaven's "social centre".

A Fairhaven landmark is the Pole House, a house suspended 40 metres above Fairhaven Beach. The original house, built in 1978, was demolished in 2013 after the owners thwarted a bid to list the house on the Victorian Heritage Register. It was rebuilt in a modern design along similar lines, on the existing pole, in 2013-14.

The Fairhaven area was badly damaged in the Ash Wednesday bushfires of 1983.

Fairhaven is a very pet friendly village with pet friendly cottages, pet friendly beach houses, and pet friendly bed and breakfasts and pet services in the area include pet food outlets, vets, and a pet transport business.

The people of Fairhaven enjoy having visitors so take your first opportunity to experience Fairhaven for yourself. You won't forget, will you.
