YOU’RE WELCOME

I AM HUNGRY FOR TODAY.

In Port Fairy, on the Great Ocean Road, every day unfolds with simple pleasures: romance and whimsy, art and music, nature and nurturing. Beat to the rhythm of life of a perfect fishing village nestled on the edge of the Southern Ocean.

CRAFT YOUR STORY IN THE MAKING. Inspire your imagination in our creative enclave. Mingle in a passionate community of local artists, artisans, musicians, crafters and makers. Soak up the energy of the iconic Port Fairy Folk Festival or meander through quaint galleries and quirky boutiques. Celebrate your own creativity with like-minds against a backdrop of nature’s finest work.


OLD-WORLD CHARM AND NATURE AT YOUR FEET Walking or cycling is the best way to explore our superbly preserved 19th century village streetscapes. Unearth a watercolour vista on a harbour-side amble. Poke around a still-thriving fishing village rippling with old-world charm. Take a trail to the Southern Ocean, Moyne River, surf beaches, swimming spots or a lighthouse that feels a million miles away from care.

BE SURPRISED By foodie adventures into incredible regional produce. By hand-made treasures and local talent. By boats bobbing gently on the river, superb coffee, wide open streets and big, beaming smiles. By the sense of belonging you feel in a place you’ve never been.

WHERE TO BEGIN

Port Fairy and Region Visitor Information Centre Railway Place, Bank Street, Port Fairy Ph: 03 5568 2682 or 1300 656 564 www.portfairyaustralia.com.au www.visitgreatoceanroad.org.au #iamportfairy #visitgreatoceanroad


CREATIVE + HERITAGE

I AM A MAKER, THINKER, DOER AND CREATOR.

Find your tribe in a passionately creative community inspired by nature. Follow the sound of fiddles to toe-tap with the crowd at the local pub. Express yourself – grab your sketchbook or your paintbox and join the arty types capturing the harbour scenery on paper. Nurture your creative heart with an art class or studio visit. Contemplate an inspiring calendar of music and art festivals stretching year-round.

I AM A TRIP BACK IN TIME ON A BRAND NEW DAY. Where maritime mystery ripples through the sea and the river and into the streets. Tap into the past and imagine a simpler life centred on the harbour and bustling fishing fleet. Wander to Battery Hill to discover historic cannons or fossick through photos, relics and time-worn tales at the Historical Society Museum.


CULTURE HIGHLIGHTS > The hardest thing about an enclave of talented artists is finding them. Grab the Port Fairy Art Walk Map and guide your own tour through a collage of galleries and working studios. | portfairyartmap.com > Plan your stay around the iconic Port Fairy Folk Festival, a toe-tapping, thigh-slapping March weekend that has thousands thronging to enjoy a program bursting with talent old and new. | portfairyfolkfestival.com > Lay your eyes on the oldest surviving self-righting lifeboat in the world at the Lifeboat Station, along with a collection of 19th century maritime rescue equipment.

Grab a map at the Visitor Information Centre and head out on the Port Fairy Historic Town Walk. > Wander on foot around windswept Griffiths Island where 19th century whalers toiled. The 1859 bluestone lighthouse still casts its warning light out across the ocean. Collect a brochure and map from the Visitor information Centre before following the interpretive walking trail.


FLAVOURS

I AM THE SMELL OF COFFEE GROUNDS AT DAWN. Gifts of the sea and the land abound in Port Fairy. The just-plucked freshness of local produce will draw you again and again to eateries to savour the tastes of the region. From barista coffee and fine dining to fish ‘n’ chips on the wharf, there’s a menu to suit your every whim. Relax and go with the flow. You’ll unearth amazing foodie encounters. Wash down native flavours and wild textures with artisan-produced brews and vintages. Meet the growers on their land, or at the market. Rustle up a picnic basket of wholesome goodness. And you’ll find a myriad of places, many occupying quaint historic buildings, to order up a sharing table of gourmet delights or a breakfast of champions you’ll never forget.


FLAVOUR INSPO > Chill with a glass of pinot noir or tasting paddle of craft beers, a delish grazing platter and fine convo about brewing and winemaking. > Scour providores for Shaw River Buffalo Cheese, a local specialty, family-farmed and produced at Yambuk. The hand-stretched mozzarella is to die for. | shawriverbuffalo.com > Let the day unfold over a leisurely breakfast at a different venue every day of your stay. > Grab a basket and get up close and personal with the growers and makers at the Port Fairy Farmers’ Market and the Community House market alternating every Saturday at Railway Place. Local produce at its peak and characters aplenty.


BOUTIQUE RETAIL

I AM THE SURPRISE DELIGHT OF A TREASURE FOUND. Port Fairy is a haven for shoppers and treasure-hunters – a one-of-a-kind enclave of passionate, boutique traders and artisans who promise you a style of retail therapy that’s easy to love. Leave the chain stores and glitzy malls behind for a quintessential village shopping experience. You’ll find hundreds of fashion labels carefully curated in quaint and quirky shops. Old buildings ingeniously transformed into chic little outlets bursting with character. Browse fledgling labels and known brands. Shop chic homewares, gifts, funky vintage stuff, curiosities, antiques, jewellery, bodycare, books and florals. Seek out hand-made, home-crafted, artisan-designed and bespoke. Thrill to a rare find, a treasured artwork or new favourite to carry home. Dive into a surprising and eclectic mix from fishing and sporting goods to fashion, hair + beauty, and wellness. Or perhaps you fancy a rummage through the Saturday community market?


RETAIL INSPO > Indulge and escape the everyday with a 2-hour package at Port Fairy Day Spa – sigh your way through a geisha spa, hydropool bath and scalp, face and foot massage. | portfairydayspa.com.au > Labels like never before. Put together a distinctive head-to-toe outfit at fall-in-love boutiques. > Keepsakes should be things you love. Muse over creations by local artists, gracing the walls, courtyards and passageways of cafés, shops and studios. Settle on a masterpiece to make your own. > Pick up a page-turner. Discover your next favourite read in one of two book shops or simply browse to your heart’s content. > Swoon over stunning handcrafted jewellery at Luone, and maybe order a custom-made keepsake. | luone.com.au


NATURE

I AM THE RAINBOW ON THE RIVER THAT PULLS YOU TOWARDS THE SEA. Answer the call of the wild on your terms. Port Fairy is nestled on the edge of the Southern Ocean at the mouth of the Moyne River. It’s a dynamic, wildlife-rich environment where you don’t need to go far to feel a million miles away. 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 nature’s serenity. From June to October, keep your ocean eyes peeled for the mighty splash of a Southern Right Whale. Look for wallabies as you wander the windswept trails of Griffiths island (almost in the heart of town). Size-up emus, koalas and kangaroos in their natural environment at Tower Hill.


| towerhill.org.au

NATURE’S GIFTS > Take a tour offshore to ogle a fur seal colony on Lady Julia Percy Island, Australia’s only submarine island formed when lava erupts underwater. Check at the Visitor Information Centre for tour details. > See a spectacular summer sight – thousands of short-tailed shearwaters (mutton birds) in return flight to their nests on Griffith Island each day at sunset between September and April. > Go wild at The Crags a short drive west of Port Fairy. Explore the rugged shoreline – rocky cliffs, calcified tree roots, jagged outcrops and panoramic coastal views. > Birdwatchers get twitchy at South and East Beach (hooded plovers), Sandy Cove (wetland species) and the river mouth mudflats (pelicans and swans). Bring your binoculars and check at the Visitor Information Centre to see what you might tick off your list. > While away the day at Tower Hill Nature Reserve, only 10 minutes up the road. Pack a picnic or, for the more adventurous, take a 2-hour guided twilight tour to eyeball nocturnal critters and pay homage to the haunting, silhouetted crater landscape at sunset. > Day trip to Macarthur, to explore Budj Bim, Australia’s most recent active volcano and a sacred indigenous site that’s rewriting history.


OUTDOOR ACTIVE

I AM THE FRESH-AIR GLOW IN YOUR CHEEKS.

Elevate your spirit. Challenge your body. Breathe in fresh ocean air. Park the car and unplug your devices. Move and be moved by Port Fairy’s stunning open spaces and free-as-a-bird places. Get energetic with an ocean surf or sailboarding at East Beach, or paddle out beyond the reef at Pea Soup. Hire a bike or a kite (or both) and whirl your way around town and beyond in search of the perfect spot to set flight. 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. Fish are plentiful and we recommended you dangle a lazy line into the Moyne River and try to outwit a brown trout.


MOVE IT, MOVE IT > For your own catch of the day, charter a fishing boat and cruise into the big blue yonder where the waters teem with snapper, bream, tuna, whiting and salmon, to name a few. > Relax and loosen up. Tee off for a leisurely round at Port Fairy Golf Club where the fairways overlook the rugged coastline of the Southern Ocean. | portfairygolf.com.au > Challenge yourself to a section of the Port Fairy – Warrnambool Rail Trail. Or all 37km, if you’re up to it, making sure you stopover in Koroit for a coffee. Explore the rural countryside at your own pace: walking, cycling, jogging or full-on running. > Head to Killarney to walk a secluded beach, clamber over shore rocks, surf ocean waves or try your hand at fishing. It’s a top spot for whiting, Australian salmon and flathead. > Wander to Mortlake, Australia’s olivine capital, to fossick for a beautiful peridot gemstone.
