The fish are biting in Port Fairy
Spotted at the western end of the magnificent Great Ocean Road is Port Fairy, a historical seaport town with a wealth of appeal. That appeal extends to keeping anglers satisfied – there are plenty of fish to catch in these waters. The team at BIG4 Port Fairy Holiday Park will explain...
Considering Port Fairy is a historical fishing village, expect anglers to be in their element here. Our picturesque town has a huge selection of fish species to test the skills of anglers, both commercial and recreational.
Take a wander to the wharf and you’ll likely witness a hive of activity. This bustling area demonstrates why Port Fairy is one of the busiest ports in Victoria. However, if you want to get among the action yourself, there is ample opportunity to do so.
Port Fairy is spotted on the Moyne River, and fishing from its banks is one of several options for anglers. Fishing from East Beach and boating in Port Fairy Bay are other leading choices. Boat ramps are located in Port Fairy as well as nearby Killarney and Yambuk Lake; although the latter only suits small boats.
There is a host of fish species that you can catch in and around Port Fairy. These include barracouta, black bream, flathead, garfish, yellow-eye mullet, mulloway, Australian salmon, tommy ruff, silver trevally, snapper, King George whiting, sand whiting, mako shark, gummy shark, and squid. These waters are also becoming very popular for tuna fishing.
While you’ll find some fish species are seasonal catches, the great part about fishing in Port Fairy is that there is always something biting no matter the time of year.
BIG4 Port Fairy Holiday Park is the ideal place to stay when you’re looking for accommodation while fishing. We provide boat parking within proximity to cabins and are able to book fishing charter trips if you’d like the experts to give you a helping hand.
And if you’re not having much luck landing a catch, you won’t leave here disappointed. Port Fairy has an instant charm: this relaxing village is dotted with striking heritage buildings, a wonderful selection of eateries, and attractions that belie its small size. Come and see us soon!
