Port Fairy is nestled on the edge of the Southern Ocean.
Yes you can have it all - a solo surf, a quiet beach to yourself, an amble by a rocky groyne without a care in the world. No bustle, no crowds, no distractions. Just you and the oceans serenity.
From June to October, keep your ocean eyes peeled for the mighty splash of a Southern Right Whale. Look for wallabies as wander the windswept trails of Griffiths island.
Don't let the kids have all the fun! Learn to SUP (Stand up Paddleboard) with a 2hour beginner lesson and tour of the historic Moyne river, lighthouse and East Beach at Port Fairy.
Bring your surfboard (or hire one) and paddle out in any of the Port Fairy surf beaches.
Go Exploring on a boat cruise on Port Fairy's iconic bay.
Port Fairy Surf Schools rent surfboards, stand up paddleboards and wet suits to people in and out of classes.
Slow down. You're on holiday. Park the car, hide the keys and explore the great outdoors with the wind in your hair and sun on your back.
Strap on your running shoes to explore a new-to-you locale at a powerful pace. Kilometre upon kilometre of trails and tracks, meander from beach to clifftop to bush to river and beyond. Escape and blow-out the cobwebs with a run, walk or cycle.
