Fairhaven is a small and sleepy seaside resort on the Great Ocean Road approx. 121 km southwest of Melbourne.

The coastline at Fairhaven is a long uninterrupted sand beach. The beach at Fairhaven is recognised as an outstanding surfing beach. Painkalac Creek, which separates Aireys Inlet from Fairhaven, forms a salt lake or inlet behind the sand dunes before it cuts through to the ocean. Due to low water levels in the inlet it is not often that the inlet breaks through.
