Things to do in Port Fairy

  1. Watch the sun set at the Passage. Climb down the rocky face, get comfy and watch the sun disappear over the horizon. It's also a great surf spot, so you may spot a surfer or two riding a wave.
  2. Have a swim in or just walk along the coast of pea soup beach and be mesmerised by the majestic reef wall surrounding it and the vast majority of marine birds that reside there.
  3. Visit Griffiths Island Lighthouse. The stroll to the lighthouse is an easy 1km walk from the car park and is home to wallabies, shearwaters and variety of other birds.
  4. Spot Sammy the Seal. Sammy hangs out by the harbour along the Moyne River and often comes out on land to laze about in the sun!
  5. Take in the air down at the Moyne River which and wharf attached near the centre of town.
