The last destination on Victoria's famed Shipwreck Coast, Port Fairy boasts wide streets lined with nineteenth century cottages, great Norfolk pines and old stone churches. Take a walk down to the local port, one of the busiest fishing ports in Victoria, head out to sea on a guided fishing trip or take a cruise out to the seal colony on Lady Julia Percy Island. Keep an eye out for breaching southern right whales off Port Fairy's coast during the winter months also when the whales come in to mate and calve.
