Port Fairy YHA

Due to the shared nature of the facilities at YHA properties, YHA requires all guests to provide proof of full vaccination and wear masks in common areas. A safe stay is our top priority so we have enhanced hygiene measures in place, along with social distancing practices. More information can be found here. If you are required to self-isolate or quarantine, please be advised you cannot be accommodated at a YHA property until after this has been completed.

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, laze on the beach, learn to surf or stand up paddleboard with Go Surf and wander the wide streets lined with quaint nineteenth century cottages including our own YHA! 

Please provide your contact information in the Comments and Arrival time field when booking online.
