Luxury, Romantic and Boutique Accommodation in Port Fairy
Sail into Port Fairy accommodation
Port Fairy is a quiet fishing village at the end of the Great Ocean Road. It boasts quaint cottages, pine-lined streets, scenic riverfront perches and a bustling port. Port Fairy’s location will make it a hit with history and maritime-buffs: it’s one of the main stops along The Historic Shipwreck Trail. The town itself boasts more than 50 National Trust-classified buildings, as well as examples of 1800s architecture and bluestone streets that are perfect for lazy strolls.
Those seeking a secluded coastal escape will love Port Fairy too, because this is a destination as far removed from the daily grind as they come. Oh, and then you have Port Fairy's undeniable appeal to culture vultures and nature lovers alike - this is definitely a town with something for everyone.
Avid anglers can get into the seaside spirit by casting their own line from bridges, beaches or aboard a chartered boat. The catch of the day might even include crayfish or abalone. If you're the sort who prefers to stay on dry land, head down to the local port to watch the fishermen unload their haul. All this talk of ocean-fresh seafood has cause to stir your appetite, and visitors eager for a true paddock-to-plate experience might even think about prepping their catch for dinner that night. Prefer to let a chef do the heavy lifting? Port Fairy has a host of great cafes, restaurants, pubs and, naturally, fish and chip shops. When you're stuffed to the gills, return to your Port Fairy accommodation to unwind.
Music-lovers can time their visit to coincide with one of the biggest events on Port Fairy’s calendar. The Port Fairy Folk Music Festival happens in March and features a great line-up of local acts.
To choose your Port Fairy accommodation, toss up between snug cottages, houses with spectacular views, kitted-out apartments and pads only a few steps from the beachfront. Or, take a look at our Victoria and Great Ocean Road accommodation.
