port fairy, victoria, australia

As with Hamilton, Port Fairy also has a claim on my heart having spent many summers in my childhood here scampering about the beaches.  The end of the Great Ocean Road, Port Fairy is a small town with a massive reputation for fun, frivolity and food.  The annual Folk Festival is a great time to be there, you really can't beat the atmosphere but you would have to plan for it a couple of years in advance if you wanted to stay in town, it is that popular.  Definitely go in the summer months to get the best out of your visit.
