Port Fairy YHA

This charming fishing village is a must see. Port Fairy is located at the end of the iconic Great Ocean Road and is one of the busiest fishing ports in Victoria. Watch the fishermen unload their catch for the day and wander the wide streets lined with quaint nineteenth century cottages including our own YHA!

A piece of Victorian history and former home to the town founder, Port Fairy YHA is one of the oldest heritage buildings in the seaside town. Ideally located, the hostel is walking distance to the town centre, lovely restaurants serving fresh locally caught seafood, beautiful beaches and picturesque Griffith Island Lighthouse. The hostel is your comfortable home away from home with an open fire place, pool table, cosy rooms, free Wi-Fi hotspot, friendly managers and free boogy board and fishing gear hire. 

Kick back and experience all charming Port Fairy has to offer today!
