Port Fairy – Victoria, home of GO Surf School.  a 3½ hours’ drive from Melbourne CBD.

Port Fairy recently won the ‘Most Liveable Community in the World’ under 20,000, and when you visit us you’ll know why we live here. It’s because of the waves and being one of the most beautiful locations in the South West!

Gentle, rolling waves along East Beach offer a tranquil, and very safe surfing experience. The wind is offshore most of the time and therefore perfect for learning to surf. Further afield, the reefs and nearby beaches offer more challenging waves that will satisfy the keenest surfer.

The Moyne River offers the perfect backdrop for a SUPing expedition, meandering through to the ocean with stunning views of the historic Port Fairy lighthouse. If you’ve ever visited Port Fairy, you’ll completely understand why we call it home.

There are plenty of local accommodation options, from quaint little B&B’s to contemporary beach houses and caravan parks to suit individuals, groups and schools.

GO Surf School run classes for surfing and stand up paddleboarding in Port Fairy all summer holidays and any other time of the year for groups of 4 plus.

Go Surf School operates at Warrnambool – Lady Bay Main Beach for Corporate, Private and School group bookings of 10 plus.

Lady Bay is a tranquil, predominantly south-facing beach that’s an ideal location to learn to surf. We conduct surfing lessons from McGennan’s Beach car park just past the Warrnambool Surf Club and Main Beach Kiosk.

The Hopkins and Merri Rivers also offer great locations to SUP for the first time, and these meander through parts of town to the sea. To the east of the Hopkins lies Logan’s Beach and a specially-constructed platform designed to overlook a whale nursery that’s frequented by female Southern Right Whales and their calves. It’s also where more experienced surfers find powerful Southern Ocean waves most of the year round.
