Fishing

Bring your own boat, the Riverhouse has ample room to park all your cars plus a boat or two and the boat ramp is only a few meters down the road. Launch your boat drive it back to the wharf opposite the Riverhouse, load up your family and provisions and away you go, after a successful day fishing drop off you load, back to the boat ramp, clean the fish and you are home.

Port Fairy historically is a fishing village, it was then and still is. Large fishing boats leave the wharf daily to fish the oceans. Recreational fishing from the river walls or surf fishing from the beaches are both an easy walk. Hiring a fishing vessel is available for those that want to leave the shores and do not have a boat.
