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, 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.
