Information

A self-guided Historical Buildings Walk tour brochure is available from the local tourist information center.

Portland was the site of Victoria's first permanent settlement back in 1834. Portland is a place of historic discovery with over 200 buildings within the town classified by the National Trust, many of which are constructed out of bluestone.

Portland's commercial centre is based around Percy Street with a number of retail outlets and eateries spilling over into Bentinck Street which overlooks a grassy foreshore, the town's marina and the expansive sands of Nuns Beach.

The Portland Cable Tram offers visitors a scenic and informative journey through the foreshore, providing views along the coast and passing attractions such as Botanic Gardens, Portland Powerhouse Car Museum, Maritime Discovery Centre, Whalers Bluff Lighthouse, and the World War 2 Memorial Lookout Tower at Anderson Point.

South of Portland is Cape Nelson which includes a 210 hectare state park bordering rugged cliffs with the Cape Nelson Lighthouse located on the coast's southern tip.
