Port Fairy Hot Rod Run

port 2

The Port Fairy Campout Hot Rod run is a very laid back weekend, held in the Victorian town of Port Fairy every January. The weekend begins with a sausage sizzle and catch up on the Friday night, there is a cruise to the town of Koroit on Saturday for lunch, then a dinner dance on Saturday night. Sunday is the all important Show and Shine, which is very popular.

The weekend is hosted by the South West Rodders, who do a great job. The Campout has been going for over thirty years and is a very family-friendly event, with generations of families attending.

If you’re interested, last week’s blog post shows some of the older caravans and campers at the Campout.

Sometimes in Port Fairy, the sky is the colour of the hot rod below. Unfortunately, it wasn’t this year…

The numbers were a little down on last year, but since floods were predicted, that wasn’t surprising. (For the record, we were very lucky with the weather, the rain missed Port Fairy completely).
