About us

Bendigo Bank’s innovative Community Bank® concept has been established in Port Fairy and the Port Fairy & District Community Bank® Branch is making a vital contribution to the community. In the 3 years since opening the Branch has experienced great growth and over $150,000 has been given back to the community in many ways such as being major sponsor of local sporting clubs, annual sponsor of the Moyneyana Festival and a significant contributor to the recent bluestone paving improvements to Sackville Street.

Port Fairy is a coastal town at the end of the Great Ocean Road in south-western Victoria, Australia. 290 kilometers west of Melbourne and 20 minutes from Warrnambool; it is the last destination on Victoria’s famed shipwreck coast.

If you are an ocean lover, you will be able to walk down to the local port to watch the fishermen unload their catch of the day, head out to sea on a guided fishing trip or cruise out to the seal colony. You can get active with surfing or paddle boarding or slow it down and watching the southern right whales breach or just enjoy the stunning ocean views. The wide streets are lined with heritage buildings and you won’t miss out with a buzzing art scene and fine food and wine on offer from the many great pubs, cafes and restaurants. The town offer two fantastic swimming and surfing beaches and outstanding sporting facilities. There is a hospital and two excellent primary schools in the town plus three secondary schools and Deakin University in nearby Warrnambool.
