Fairy Park (Anakie)
Fairy Park (also known as the Fairytale Park or the Fairytale Theme Park), is located at Anakie, one hour west from Melbourne and 30 minutes from Geelong in Victoria, Australia. It is open all year round (except Christmas Day) from 10am til 4pm sharp, with its website offering daily weather forecasts for prospect visitors.
Opening in December 1959, the park was the idea of Peter Mayer, a German immigrant to the country. The Mayer family would make many of the original displays by hand, before purchasing the land in Anakie and opening the park. The Mayer family still own and run the park to this day.
Fairy Park celebrated its 50th birthday in 2009.
