Explore Portland and Discovery Coast and spot seals at Cape Bridgewater, watch blue whales off Cape Nelson or traverse the Great South West Walk. Discover a colourful history, get back to nature, surf some great waves, catch a fish, wander historic streets and dine on great local food and wine. Take the Portland self-guided Historic Buildings Walk for a closer look at the city's hundreds of heritage buildings. Portland became Victoria's first permanent European settlement in 1834. Portland's waterfront is alive with activity – see big ships from around the world come in to load up local produce and the local fishing fleet unload its catch. Take a ride on the foreshore cable tram and watch for whales during the winter months. If you're after a spot of fishing, Portland is an angler's paradise.
Portland has a wide variety of accommodation including motels, hotels and serviced apartments.
