Portland was the first permanent settlement in Victoria and more than 200 historical buildings remain from the 1800s. Take a self-guided tour of the many beautifully maintained heritage buildings and private homes.
Portland's long seafaring history began with the sealers and whalers who came to shelter in its natural deep water harbour during southern storms. The Maritime Discovery Centre holds fascinating displays of this era as well as a Sperm Whale Skeleton, Southern Right Whale, Shark Showcase, a Portland Lifeboat from the 1850s, and shipwreck showcases among many other exhibits.
Today, Portland's waterfront is still a hub of activity with ships from around the world loading up with local produce, the local fishing fleet bringing in their catch in the early mornings and locals and visitors alike strolling along the wide foreshore reserve. Whales sometimes visit in the winter months.
Take a ride on the Portland Cable Tram along Portland's historic foreshore to visit the Maritime Museum, Portland Powerhouse Car Museum, the Botanic Gardens and Portland's World War II Memorial Lookout. For a view from the water try a harbour cruise.
Portland Powerhouse Car Museum offers a unique collection of lovingly restored veteran, vintage and classic cars, motorcycles, tractors, trams, and stationary engines.
Cape Bridgewater, just 21 kilometres to the southwest, is a delightful day trip with highlights including the Petrified Forest, the Blow Holes, Limestone Caves and Australia's largest breeding colony of fur seals.
