We visited the cemetery looking for stray Scots! What we found was an interesting exercise in genealogy. So many Irish names, as well as Scots, and the headstones make such fascinating reading. The cemetery is well laid out & attractive & well worth a visit...More

A fascinating tour though the history of the area. Worth a visit if you like that sort of thing. Makes you realise just how lucky we are to live in this day and age. Life was so much harder in the past.

A lot of old graves in here, and a lot of history. Very neat and well looked after. Just on the edge of town, and you are able to drive through.

I'm a history lover so I've been to many cemeteries in Victoria, Queensland and overseas, but Port Fairy is my favourite. The graves are historic, well kept and readable, the atmosphere is quite and peaceful and there's a large slice of Port Fairy history buried...More
