About Port Fairy

Port Fairy is a coastal town in south-western Victoria, Australia.  It lies on the Princes Highway in the Shire of Moyne, 28 kilometres (17 mi) west of Warrnambool and 290 kilometres (180 mi) west of Melbourne, at the point where the Moyne River enters the Southern Ocean.

The Gunditjmara aboriginals lived in the Port Fairy area prior to European arrival. 

In the early 19th century whalers and seal hunters used the coast in this region.  The bay was named by the crew of the whaler The Fairy in 1828.

John Griffiths established a whaling station in 1835 and a store was opened in 1839.  In 1843, James Atkinson, a Sydney solicitor, purchased land in the town by special survey.  He drained the swamps, subdivided and leased the land, and built a harbour on the Moyne River.  He named the town “Belfast” after his hometown in Ireland

The post office opened on 1 July 1843 (the post office actually opened in 1837 as “Port Fairy” but was renamed “Belfast” on 1 January 1854 before reverting to the original name on 20 July 1887.)

Agriculture developed in the region, and Belfast became an important transport hub. 

By 1857 the town had a population of 2,190.  In the mid-to-late 19th century, Belfast was one of Australia’s largest ports, catering to the whaling industry.  In 1887, the town was renamed Port Fairy as a result of an Act of Parliament.

A railway was extended to the town in 1890, but closed in 1977. It has been converted into the Port Fairy to Warrnambool Rail Trail.

A hassle-free property, well equipped, beautiful location on a beach where you can walk for an hour in one direction, swim all year round, and walk right back into a pure luxury home. Most of all it’s quiet, private, and away from the crowds, yet a few minutes to all the shops, restaurants, cafes, & services if required. An absolutely perfect getaway. 5 stars!
