Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    A great walk! Saw wallabies and lots of shorebirds. Do the longer walk! It is worth it and not that arduous

    Very informative, knowledgeable re the local area, and offered great guidance! While the weather was pretty ordinary, the staff went out of their way to find places to see and experience that we would enjoy and still come back for more!

    The lighthouse was built in 1855 on Rabbit Island that merged with Griffith Island and stands on the rocky point and still works. It was a pleasant little light house on a wind swept island off Port Fairy and a good walk from the town

    It was a beautiful strip along the entirety of the boardwalk along the Moyne river wharf area which had many sailboats and fishing boats moored alongside. There was plenty of parking and amenities for the visitors and restaurant to cater to their needs. I had a very relaxed walk in this scenic area which I found to be very picturesque.

    Didn't go there in person, but I did order a beautiful pair of earrings from the website for my wife for Christmas. They're stunning, beautifully designed and made, and my wife is super pleased with them.

    What's more, I ordered far too close to Christmas for comfort, but Lucinda still made them to order and express-posted them to me in plenty of time for Christmas Eve.

    Thank you Lucinda.

    East beach was almost deserted at the time of our visit. The sea was relatively calm with frequent but gentle waves and it was beautiful. We were able to walk along the beachfront enjoying the views of the Griffith Island and its lighthouse which was at one end. Port fairy bay was very picturesque.

    Worth the trip out of town, this is a quiet beach, for long walks and easier swimming when the weather permits. Caravan park close at hand.
