The thriving city of Portland is steeped in history, and as Victoria's birthplace, it also boasts the State's oldest European settlement. With a population of approximately 10,000, the city is based around the picturesque Portland Bay, which features one of the deepest international ports in southern Australia.
The foreshore cable tram is a unique way to see Portland, while nature lovers can spot playful seals at Cape Bridgewater.
You’ll love getting lost in its streets, peppered with over 200 beautifully maintained heritage buildings. For a closer look, take the Portland self-guided Historical Buildings Walk. If you’re curious about the town’s long seafaring history, pop over to Portland Maritime Discovery center, where you can also step inside the ribcage of a sperm whale skeleton.
