Port Fairy | Australia

Port Fairy, Australia, Travel, Beach, Bramble and Thorn

There are few places on earth that I love more than Port Fairy. It's like an old, warm jumper: familiar and comforting. I grew up in this small coastal town that is tucked away at the bottom of Australia and despite the three and a half hour drive from Melbourne I try and make my way back as often as possible. Luckily a long weekend was upon us last week so I made my way down after work on a Thursday night.

Instead of the rumbling of the first train of the morning, I was woken each day by the sound of the waves and the birds singing. The weather was perfect; 28 degrees and sunny, just warm enough to get into the freezing Indian Ocean.

Of course, a weekend at the beach wouldn't be complete without a visit to Poco, the gorgeous artisanal ice-cream shop that creates the most inventive flavours every day of the warmer months. I chose white chocolate with white hazelnut sauce...and then mint choc chip when I returned the following day. No judgment.

Walking along the beach at sunset each night was the perfect way to end the day. As the mist rolls in over the ocean, it creates the most beautiful sunset, and it's hard to do anything other than just stare out at the stunning sight.
