Port Fairy is extremely unique to me. My very first solo travel was to Port Fairy in Victoria. I was alone living in Melbourne and I wanted to travel. It is challenging to come across travel buddies when you are living all by your self in an unknown nation. So, I decided to take the step and decided my very first solo travel.
Port Fairy is coastal town in the state of Victoria. It is about 290 kilometres from Melbourne and the nearest train station is at Warrnambool, which is 28 kilometres from Port Fairy. I chosen this town only due to the fact there was a YHA at Port Fairy – I know, quite lame 😀 .
How to get to Port Fairy?
- There are frequent trains amongst Southern Cross (Melbourne) and Warrnambool. The journey is close to three.five hours.
- There are buses amongst Warrnambool train station and Port Fairy.
Exactly where to remain?
As I described ahead of, I stayed at YHA Port Fairy. Incredibly close to the coast and a wonderful location to remain. A bed at a dorm fees as low as AUD 30.
What to see?
The coastal town has lots to provide. It is an incredible location for whale watching for the duration of the whale season. There are other factors to do in the town:
- Griffiths Island – A stroll about the island is undoubtedly a ought to do when in Port Fairy.
- Port Fairy Lighthouse
- Port Fairy town – The cafes are cute and the town itself is extremely quite.
