Due to the Covid-19 Corona virus pandemic closing everything down and the upcoming travel bans we could not get into our original accommodation at Surfside Holiday Park Warrnambool so we found a small caravan park in Port Fairy called Port Fairy Holiday Park. We were very fortunate as all other caravan parks in the district were closed and we were only allowed to stay as all 3 of us had caravans with their own toilet & shower; meaning we were totally self sufficient.
We went for a walk along the rock wall where the Moyne River runs out into Port Fairy Bay then took a drive around to check out the surf at Southcombe Beach and it was pumping.
We found a brilliant Thai restaurant in town called Lemongrass Thai whose takeaways (not allowed to dine-in due to Covid-19) was really tasty. Totally recommend it and will visit for a dine-in next time we stay in Port Fairy.
Here’s a short YouTube video Merrisa took of the surfers at Port Fairy…
Would we return?
We’ve been to the lovely town of Port Fairy several times now and totally love it. Yes, we would come back again but only if we were “passing by”. Check out TripAdvisor for more information about things to do in Port Fairy. Tip – Stay at the Gardens Caravan Park – it’s great and close to town as well.
