Portland: tourist information

As the birthplace of European settlement, Portland is steeped in history, with its past playing a big role in its present and future. Many of its 200 heritage buildings from the 1800's are now fine places to dine and/or to stay.

Visitors can enjoy the special ambience and when it comes to dining, the local fishing industry ensures only the freshest seafood is on the menu.

There is always some activity on Portland’s waterfront: big ships from around the world coming in to load up, the fishing fleet unloading its catch in the early morning or heading out in the dark of night and people enjoying the wide foreshore reserve.

And for those who like dropping in a line, Portland is an angler’s paradise. From a boat or the beach, the range of fish that can be hooked is extensive, including King George whiting, flathead, snapper, tuna and mulloway. Details are available at the Visitor Information Centre. While locals may want to keep it quiet, Portland has some of the best surf this side of Bells Beach. The choice spots are Watertower, Blacknose, Crumpets, Yellow Rock and Murrells.

And when in Portland during September and October, keep an eye out for southern right whales. These giants of the deep have been seen frolicking close to shore in Portland Bay.

Visit the Portland Maritime Discovery and Visitors Centre, which showcases the maritime history of the region through a sight and sound-filled exhibition. View the oldest surviving intact vessel in Australia, the Portland Lifeboat built in 1858, or take a leisurely walk through the Portland Botanic Gardens, established in 1857.
