Portland has become the first accredited RV Friendly Town on the coast west of Melbourne.

Portland is one of the premier destinations for whale, seal and gannet sightseeing. With dramatic coastline and volcanic cliffs, isolated beaches, majestic forests and historical buildings, the town is unsurpassed in options for leisure or outdoor pursuits.
