About Portland (Australia)

A look back at Portland's past reveals an impressive claim to fame: This pretty town on the rugged southwest coast of Victoria was the site of the earliest European settlement in the state. It's no surprise the streets are lined with restored heritage buildings, providing a bonanza for lovers of Australian history and architecture.

Located within reach of the unforgettable Twelve Apostles, many visitors to Victoria will seize the opportunity to visit the Great Ocean Road and see these majestic rock formations rising up from the Southern Ocean. Also possible to visit on a daytrip is Grampians National Park, where rugged mountains, waterfalls, wildlife and Aboriginal rock art can be enjoyed.
