Port Fairy is a charming seaside town located on Australia’s Great Coast Road. Enriched by more than a century old history, the town enthralls visitors with its centuries-old quaint cottages, towering Norfolk pine tree and vibrant art scene. Visit the town during the Port Fairy Folk Festival, held every year in March and one of Australia’s largest music festivals. With a number of historic buildings and structures, the town is best explored through one of the many heritage walks. The waters off of Port Fairy are home to whales, seals and dolphins and a cruise from the local port is the best way to catch sight of these animals. The Bay of Islands, Griffith Island, and Children’s Cove are stunning spots by the coast to visit and provide opportunities for memorable pictures. Tickle your tastebuds with freshly prepared seasonal fare or a classic Aussie pub meal at the Wharf area which continues to be the town’s recreational hub since the 1850s.
