Here’s a chance to combine culture, bushwalking and beach rambling. There’s an opportunity to come for all or part of the trip. From Friday 8th till Monday 11th March is the Port Fairy Music Festival. This is a wonderful festival of mu-sic of various styles with musicians from Australia and overseas. There is a range of ticket prices with early bird tickets available until 14th October. Check out the web site http://www.portfairyfolkfestival.com/ and if you would like to attend the Music Festival, book your tickets or contact me ASAP. The earlier you book, the cheaper they are. We will camp for the 3 nights of the festi-val in a caravan park at Port Fairy within walking distance of all the music venues. Camping cost is $99 per person and bookings need to be made early to be guaranteed a booking, so if planning to come on this part of the trip, contact me ASAP. You can also come for the weekend without a festival pass and enjoy free musical performances in open areas, ride the bike trail to Warrnambool, explore Port Fairy or sit on the beach. After the festival we move to Portland where bunkhouse accommodation is booked from 11th -17th March. The cost of this will depend on numbers but will be be-tween $150and $250 for 6 nights. It will be a wonderful opportunity to explore the many walks of varying lengths in the area as the Great South West Walk starts and finishes at Portland.
