"Great town" Port Fairy by EllenH

Port Fairy Travel Guide: 48 reviews and 104 photos

Driving up The Great Ocean Road from Melbourne to Adelaide, on our way to the Barossa valley is a long but beautiful drive. A nice place to stop in between is Port Fairy, a cute, artsy, very friendly town with a great beach.

    Hi Ellen, You could not find a better town for overnight stay than Port Fairy. We stayed in a converted flour warehouse and took the ferry tour the next morning.
