Griffiths Island

Reviewed By Dorothy M - Ottawa, Canada

What a beautiful walk around the island. The vista are beautiful and the walk varies from concrete to a pebbled walkway to beach sand. The lighthouse provides a perfect photo opportunity as the waves crash against the black rocks. The island is a sanctuary for Shearwater bird colonies. We were very lucky to see a group of wallabies. We were very excited with this find!!!! The Beaches are beautiful.....ENJOY you hike!!!!

The Port Fairy & Region Visitor Information Centre

Reviewed By SuzannahA - Gympie, Australia

We found everything we wanted I here, including local maps and suggestions of what to do from the helpful lady behind the counter. She told us that seeing the nightly return of the Shearwaters to Griffith Island was a must, and she wasn't wrong!

Loved looking,if I hadn't already spent on a previous art buy, I would have bought a beautiful glass bowl, expensive? Not for such exquisite work. There is a wonderful lady (name escapes me) who takes photographs-her neice takes the part of red riding hood in...MoreThanks for the wonderful comments. We love having the opportunity to present works by talented local artists. The photographer you mention is Berit Hampel. Her photos always have a surreal, magical quality which has been recognised and awarded internationally. We are very proud of her!

LUONE Silversmith, Bespoke Jewellery Designer

Reviewed By letsdothat - Melbourne, Australia

Any one who's ever been to Port Fairy knows a visit is not complete without strolling through the boutiques and galleries, LUONE is no exception. The picturesque store/workshop showcases the beautiful jewellery made by the owner/silversmith herself. Customer service is nothing short of exceptional and if you could take just one thing home with you from your visit to Port Fairy...a stunning piece of unique jewellery is the perfect option. Thank you, I'm very happy with my ring and am always proud to let people know where it came from :)

Codrington Wind Farm

Reviewed By Krissydidit - Melbourne, Australia

Looked forward to getting up close and personal with the windmills You could see them from some distance on the road. Followed the road signs only to get there and find a viewing platform miles away from the windmills/farm. Disappointed. Don't even bother stopping. Its not worth it.
