Swim at one of the sheltered beaches or surf at one of the popular breaks, watch the sailboards and keel boat racing on the weekends or just soak up the sun.
Watch the swans, pelicans and shearwaters feeding on the river and the mud flats at low tide.
Take a walk to Griffiths Island, home to many small swamp wallabies and a large colony of short tailed shearwaters or mutton birds. The mutton birds arrive in September after an amazing 15000km migratory flight from the Aleutian Islands near Alaska. Watch as mutton birds fly into nest every night at dusk.
Also on Griffith Island take a walk to the Lighthouse which still operates on wind and solar power and see the remains of the Light keepers cottage and gardens still in bloom.
Look through the displays of old costumes, shipping relics and photographs of early Port Fairy at the Historic Society Museum. Open Wednesday, Saturdays and Sundays from 2:00 to 5:00pm
