Port Fairy

Port Fairy is such a beautiful little town 26 minutes (28km) drive away from Warnnambool and 3h 25 min from Melbourne.  If you have never been you really should make the effort to get there.  It's one of the best and prettiest places in Victoria.

There are many sites in and around Port Fairy for the hiker.  I am only touching the surface here and these cover easy family walks rather than full-on walks for the avid bush walker.

Some hiking trails/areas are:


Mount Noorat Crater
Special Events
Time your trip for the Koroit Irish Festival and enjoy the local community atmosphere.
