Fairhaven is a coastal gem located between Anglesea and Lorne on the Great Ocean Road. A popular holiday destination, this small coastal town boasts the longest beach on the Great Ocean Road spanning around 6km, making Fairhaven the perfect place for a stroll along the golden sands. The heart and soul of the small town is the Fairhaven Surf Life Saving Club, and its boating program is recognised nationally as one of the best.

The exposed beach offers some great surfing with Spout Creek on the western end of Fairhaven sheltering the cold westerly winds.
