Port Fairy Branch
The Port Fairy Branch works with council and the community on local heritage issues. It supervises the National Trust owned property, Motts Cottage, and supervises Mills Cottage. The Branch holds regular meetings and open days and new members are always welcome. To find out more please contact the Branch using the form below.
With the generous assistance of community volunteers, the Branch opens Motts Cottage on Wednesdays and Saturdays, 2pm to 4pm, from the beginning of September until the Queen's Birthday weekend. Entry $2.
The Branch also supervises Captain Mills Cottage, a c.1843 or earlier unfurnished timber cottage, with additional front rooms (c.1853) and basalt stable, which is opened for special events.
The Branch cares for the 1861 basalt powder magazine located on the Battery Hill peninsula. This magazine was built to store black powder used in quarrying and blasting channels in the volcanic landscape. It later stored munitions for the Battery volunteers. It can be viewed externally at any time and can be found at the end of Griffiths street, Port Fairy.
