a little off the beaten track and forgotten
In a nutshell
Worth a visit no doubt
My wife and I made arrangements to rent a car through Europcar for our drive on the Great Ocean Road. We arrived at the train station in Melbourne and headed off to the car rental office. Our car was at an off site location (weird) so we hopped into a car with the clerk to another Europcar location to pick up our car.
Our car was a basic economy car, four door, Hyundai. I paid extra($20) for a GPS unit as we were unfamiliar with our route. Our car was clean and safe; we had no problems at all with the service or the GPS during our trip.

I had read the crayfish season was from November to August, so going in July we thought we'd be fine, but the seasons have been changed recently and they are only in season for 6-8 weeks at a time. Best to contact the tourist info centre to find out if they are in season when you are planning your trip.
Unique Suggestions: Everything about Port fairy was fantastic, we loved Wisharts for dinner - best fish pie I've ever tasted, and loved the laid back nature of the locals. We didn't see the whales on our trip but there are lots of places to view them and lots of people will let you know if they are around.

At first glance, when we pulled up at the waterfront a few hundred metres out of Port Fairy, it didn't look like a spot for surfers, with all those rocks on the shore and out at least a little way as well...but there they were, about 16 of them, and we soon saw why:
the waves were much bigger than at Warrnambool, and came in on a diagonal angle, rather than straight, and some of those surfers were really getting a good run!
We spent quite some time enjoying watching them from the comfort of our car (as it was rather windy, as this coast can get).
