Our house is a 5 minute walk through a park into town (restaurants , hotels(4) and shops).
The town is a fishing village situated on the Moyne River and has 2 beaches--one facing east and the other facing south. It has a population of about 3000 which swells to 20,000+ during the 2nd weekend in March when it hosts the Port Fairy Folk Festival. It is 25 km from Warrnambool (pop.25,000) and 3.5 hours west of Melbourne (by train)
Giffith Island is a short walk from town and has a lighthouse and is home to a large colony of mutton birds and wallabies.
Fishing charters/tours are available from the wharf.
Something about ourselves
We are a semi-retired lawyer and a retired teacher/librarian (Geoff and Elaine) and are keen travellers.
We would consider simultaneous and non-simultaneous exchanges and short or long term exchanges.
We also have a recently renovated 1BR unit, with a garage, in Richmond available for exchange. It is 100 metres from the train station and 2km from central Melbourne.

If you don't arrange an exchange the first year, your second year is free.
