Port Fairy

Port Fairy is a coastal town in the Great Ocean Road region of Victoria that offers both an open surf beach area plus a harbour and river area. The town has a population of approximately 2700 people and there are a number of pet friendly accommodation venues in Port Fairy.

Port Fairy is actually on the Princes Highway where the Moyne River meets the ocean in the Shire of Moyne. Just 30 kilometres west of Warrnambool and 290 kilometres from Melbourne, Port Fairy was first settled around the 1830s but was originally named Belfast.
