Arrived in Port Fairy on a beautiful rainy afternoon, never been here before so started looking around. Very interesting and inspiring place, best thing was that it supports local artisans. The items were absolutely amazing & gorgeous.

We were disappointed with this gallery. It is very attractive & well set out, but we didn't feel the artwork or photographs really captured Port Fairy. We did like the glassware. Don't be put off by our reaction, have a look.
