Port Fairy Historical Society

The historical society's museum contains relics from the 19th-century whaling days, when Port Fairy was a whaling station with one of the largest ports in Victoria. It also highlights the stories of the many ships that have come to grief along this dangerous coast.

Tower Hill State Game Reserve

Tower Hill

This reserve—Victoria's largest dormant volcano—is packed with native Australian animals in their natural state. The Worn Gundidj Visitor Centre in the reserve conducts cultural interpretative walks. Take its 90-minute personalized bush and nature walk to learn about Indigenous lifestyles, bush food, and medicine, and hear about the local inhabitants, which include emus, sugar gliders, koalas, kangaroos, birds, and reptiles. The standard tour is A$35; also ask about the availability of other occasional specialist tours, including twilight visits, to experience Aboriginal culture firsthand. Parks Victoria's website also has a map of the reserve and self-guided walking trails.
