Portland Information

Portland in Victoria is a medium sized town with a population of about 10,000 people. The township was named after the Duke of Portland in England. Before European settlement the Gunditjmara aboriginal people inhabited the area living in stone huts.

In 1834 Edward Henty arrived in Portland from Tasmania and established settlement. As it wasn’t until 1835 that people settled in Melbourne, that makes Portland Victoria’s birthplace as it was the very first town to be established.

One of the best activities to do in Portland is to experience the Great South West Walk, which is a 250 kilometre walking track which will take you through forests, gorges and cliff tops. The Eco walk features plenty of wildlife and fauna with some very spectacular scenery.

The Portland Maritime Museum is another great attraction to visit. The museum features one of the oldest lifeboats in the world, a real whale skeleton and memorabilia on some of the many shipwrecks that occurred off the Portland coastline.

Another great museum to discover is the Portland Powerhouse Museum. The museum holds and extensive display of vintage cars and motorbikes from the 1900’s to the 1960’s. There is also other automotive memorabilia such as old petrol pumps, antique signs and toys.

The Portland Cable Tram is a great way to discover the township of Portland. The tram ride is very scenic and stops at some of the best tourist places to see in Portland. Along the ride you will also pass through the botanical gardens and some magical coastal strips.

While in (email hidden) to see is the Cape Nelson Lighthouse, which is located not too far away. The lighthouse was built in 1884 and features a telescope, which was installed in 1885 and at the time was the biggest telescope of its kind in Australia.

  • Trevor and Laima are truly amazing hosts. They have so many great reviews for a reason. They both go out of their way to help, welcome you, ensure you have everything you need and cook a beautiful breakfast! This was really appreciated as it helped us get on the road the next day to Adelaide. I would highly recommend this as a great place to stay if driving between Melbourne and Adelaide (either direction) while seeing the great ocean road as it is roughly half way. The house and rooms are very comfortable and cosy. Overall a great experience. Thank you Trevor and Laima!

  • We had a wonderful time with Trevor and Laima. They a wonderful, warm and fascinating hosts. We had many adventures that were only possible because we stayed with them; watching koalas, viewing a sunset from a magnificent beach and feeding alpacas.
    Our lodgings were very clean and comfortable, we had a wing of the house to ourselves. The wood fire provided a welcoming glow in the afternoons and the pool table and dogs provided us with great entertainment between sightseeing expeditions.
    We can't wait to go back.

  • We had a wonderful experience staying with Trevor and Laima. They were fantastic hosts, and looked after us very well, including providing an outstanding (and huge) breakfast spread. We were surprised, happy and full!
    They have a beautiful property, complete with dogs and a baby alpaca called Nelson. The location is excellent, only a short distance from town, and very close to the Cape Nelson lighthouse.
    We had a lovely night, comfortable and warm, and felt really at home. Would definitely stay there again in the future.

  • Our stay with Trevor and Laima exceeded our expectations. We were treated with great generosity and kindness throughout our stay and learned much about Trevor's and Laima's lives, while also being helpfully guided to the most interesting and beautiful local places to visit. This meant that our stay was immensely rewarding, far beyond other good experiences we have had with Air BnB hosts.

  • We had a wonderful time at Laima and Trevors beautiful home. They were very welcoming and even cooked us some delicious pasta when arriving. They do absolutely everything to make you feel at home. The room with own bathroom was clean and cozy. We have gotten good tips for our future travel and could meet and also feed their animals. Thank you Laima and Trevor for this remarkable stay! Please say hello to Sofia as well.

  • We had a lovely stay with Trevor and Laima. We arrived late in the evening but they made time to chat and make us feel very welcome. The room and bathroom are very comfortable. The night was cold but there is a heater in the bedroom.

    In the morning Laima cooked us a delicious breakfast and made us excellent coffee. And again our hosts made time to talk with us. If we could have stayed longer, we would have.
