Port Fairy

Originally named Belfast with a large Irish immigration, was later called Port Fairy in 1887. In the 1850s the port was the second busiest in Australia, transporting goods to England, today the town is mainly a fishing village and tourist destination. The historic Celtic seaside port lined with Norfolk Pines has plenty of charm and character from the 19th century. There are over 50 historic buildings still standing to explore as well as a lighthouse built in 1859 by Scottish stonemasons. The Southern Right Whales migrate to area from June to October to breed.
