The best holiday house in Port Fairy: Middenway, a home away from home in this beautiful coastal town.

Southcombe Caravan Park - There are a million places to stay in Port Fairy, b&bs, apartments, but I spent two weeks of school holidays every year at the Southcombe Caravan Park and stayed again on my most recent trip and I cannot fault it. Everywhere in town is walkable from the Park and in my opinion is right next to the best beach for families being cut off from the surf by a reef.  Private sites, clean and free facilities, friendly guests and staff.

Rebecca's Cafe - Rebecca's is a local institution and for good reason. Featuring an ice creamery, take away coffee window and a cafe, it is easily one of the busiest eateries in town. My companion ordered the wild rice porridge with stewed rhubarb and it was gone in five minutes, must've been good!

Cheapside Tacos - As a single diner I do tend to value friendly, comfortable environs so I bypassed the tempting but overwhelming Coffin Sally (adore their sign attitude, next time!) and ran into Cheapside Tacos. The guys were closing up early but offered to make me a pre-cinema meal anyway, bless! I ordered their full recommendations of a beef taco and chicken quesadilla, washed down with a refreshing glass of sangria.

Cobb's Bakery - When I was a wee lass Cobb's pastries for breakfast was the biggest treat and I was not passing up the opportunity to get stuck into an apricot strudel again! Rarely does revisiting our childhood memories live up to our expectations but Cobb's is a wonderful exception.  Also perfect for stocking up on bread, buns or made-to-order sandwiches and rolls for a day at the beach.

I my opinion the finest Port Fairy breakfast haul: caffe latte from (Toby's Estate) and apricot strudel from I think I want to live here. by amelburnianguideto

Bella Claire - A bit of analysis of Beanhunter was required to arrive at a go-to coffee stop and Bella's came out on top.  I have to say, given the Toby's Estate beans this was not a hard sell, I have had previous good luck with these beans while travelling in Sydney.

Reardon Theatre - To complete my evening I bought my $8 ticket (Melburnians can you believe it??) to see a screening of The Hobbit at the Reardon Theatre, the lovely lady at the desk even let me take my Poco ice cream inside. Many a night of my childhood summers were spent here viewing classics like Roger Rabbit, Turner and Hooch, and Demolition Man. Reardon is run by the Port Fairy Film Society, prior to screening patrons were shown a selection from the ABC's What's Your Story instead.
