Accommodation in Port Fairy is generally a bit more expensive than the equivalent accommodation in Warrnambool, but on a par with places like Port Campbell and Apollo Bay, and like of many of the smaller holiday destinations, the accommodation seems to be predominantly, apartment, B&B and cottage style and geared towards longer term stays.
Port Fairy also has a good caravan and camping facilities (a legacy of the local folk festival) with two commercial caravan parks on the highway and a large council operated camping ground at Southcombe Park (the Folk Festival site) plus the original camping ground at the Gardens Reserve (the local football and cricket oval), however none of these are adjacent to the beach, the Gardens Reserve is the closest at about 500 metres from the beach.
Port Fairy has three motels, one on the highway and the other two close to the main street..
