Portland Travel Guide

Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Portland was founded in the 1830's, which makes it the oldest town in Victoria. It once was a base for whaling, but now the town thrives on the aluminium production. It still has over 200 well maintained heritage buildings, giving the town a pleasant old feel. You can visit a few museums on Portlands history, and learn about the early settling days.

Talk a walk around the still thriving harbour and smell the sea. The harbour is also a great place for recreational fishing. Most areas of the port are accesible to recreational fishermen, including the Lee Breakwater wharf, that stretches into open water for 1 km. The industrial areas are not open to the public because of the heavy traffic and custom regulations, but guided tours are available.
