Port Fairy Accommodation
Many travel guides describe Port Fairy as a picture postcard seaside fishing village set on the edge of a long sweeping bay. Port Fairy also had a very chequered history, beginning as one of the earliest settlements in Victoria, and going through private ownership, a change of name to Belfast and then bankruptcy before reverting back to Port Fairy in 1870. This disruption virtually halted all growth in the town and Port Fairy today is almost the same size it was in 1860. The events which slowed Port Fairy’s growth has creating a quiet seaside fishing village that now attract visitors looking for relaxing holidays by the sea.
