Portland is known as Victoria's birthplace based on it being the first permanent white settlement in 1834, one year prior to Melbourne. The Henty family feature in the history of Portland, and many buildings in the town bear witness to their presence, including the corner of Bentinck St and Julia St where the former London Inn was built in 1844 (The words: London Hotel - still feature over the top windows of the building). The foreshore is abound with wharves and industry, yet is balanced with well maintained lawns and streetscapes leaving a brilliant view of the historical buildings and facades that continue to capture the attention of travellers enjoying a visit to this great town.

Cape Bridgewater (18km), Yambuk (40km)
