Our tourist association has put together a very good little booklet on Port Fairy covering its history and natural attractions, where to go and what to see. To view a handy pdf version click here.
We have provided links to just a few of our favourite places. If you have discovered something you think we should be covering let us know.
Port Fairy has a strong creative heart. A number of talented artists sell direct from their studios, many of them just at the other end of our street.
Eclectic Designs Glass Studio
Old Market Inn Studio and Gallery
Local artists also operate Whale Bone Gallery in the centre of town.
Also worth a look are Wishart Gallery and Limestone Studio and Gallery.

With it’s four pubs, numerous cafes and takeaway food options Port Fairy has something for every taste and mood. There are also a number of good restaurants, all within easy walking distance.
- Merrijig Inn
both have websites where you can get a feel for what they are offering but it’s also worth taking a walk past …
- The Stag
… to have a look at the menus out front.
Time and Tide with its spectacular location offers “high tea by the high sea” on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. It’s a little more than a walk away but well worth investigating.
No need for TV, marshmallows and monoploly is all that is needed. We loved the history and atmosphere of No1 William St. We will be back ASAP.! M’s 4th birthday here was all her dreams in one.
