A comfortable way to travel to Melbourne again 2016 travel blog

We did not go in the sea but the views and walk...

View down the river Moyne estuary from the footbridge from town over...

Some of the smart older properties overlooking the estuary

White faced heron

And a pied cormorant fishing .... successfully... as we walked back from...

A welcome swallow that has just left its nest and was resting...

Four wallaby heads popped up out of the bush as we walked...


Today has been a little cooler than yesterday so has been ideal for exploring Port Fairy which is a pretty little town full of boats or all shapes and sizes as well as quite a lot of history and three very large camping grounds and lots of apartments to let. It must be a very busy place in the summer holidays but it has been very quiet for us. Some of the expensive sailing yatches moored on the Moyne estuary looked as if they had not moved for ages but there were dozens of empty trailers with cars attached above the slipway so there must be a lot of people out fishing even if there are not many around town!

There is also a lovely wide sandy beach with small waves for beginner surfers and round the bay there are miles of large expensive looking empty properties to let. It certainly is a tourist town.As well as attracting sailors and surfers , Griffiths Island with its thousands of Shearwater burrows and birds has a lovely easy walk round with plenty of other birds of interest and wallaby for those interested in wildlife and ithe town is also at the end off quite a long cycle trail ( 20 mile or so ) .....so there is something for everyone.
