We stayed in a 2 bdrm upstairs apartment with secure parking which we got a great deal for online. Close enough to Warrnambool for the Kids4Fun festival but far enough away to feel like it was a true get away not just for the kids. Port Fairy is as gorgeous as I remember with doable walks that cover a marina, national parklands and beachfronts. The service was very friendly with great advice on the best pub to eat at on a windy Sunday night (Caledonian Inn), child friendly, band not too land, lively atmosphere and good food; The kids loved the lolli shop in town only a 5 min walk away. A huge tip - buy bottled water from the IGA around the corner as the local water is utterly revolting! We were lucky and only had people staying on the bottom level for 1 of our 3 night stay as yes you can hear them. TV in the kids room meant a lie in for us and was a novelty they enjoyed. The apartments were a great use of the space with generous living areas and a balcony that would have been lovely if the weather wasn't so windy. Missed a second bathroom but we coped.
The beautiful GOR is an easy hour + 1/2 or so drive away through gorgeous farmlands and if you come straight down the Princess Hwy from/to Geelong and turn off at/to Colac you avoid the most tortious part of the winding roads without missing the awesome view of the Apostles, London Bridge, Arch etc. Lovely cheese factory at Timboon to enjoy and grab a few things for a picnic at Port Campbell.
All up a great area for a family getaway.
