PORT­LAND: WHERE NA­TURE MEETS AD­VEN­TURE

THE 12 APOS­TLES MAY PRO­VIDE THAT ICONIC POSTCARD SHOT OF AUS­TRALIA’S MOST FA­MOUS TOUR­ING ROUTE, BUT IT’S THE COASTAL TOWN OF PORT­LAND THAT IS AT­TRACT­ING THOSE OF US WANT­ING TO ‘SCOUT’ OUT SOME AMAZ­ING NA­TURE AND AD­VEN­TURE OP­TIONS.

Sit­u­ated half­way be­tween Ade­laide and Mel­bourne, the coastal town of Port­land was the birth­place of Vic­to­ria in the early 1800s. Port­land’s blue­stone paved streets are lined with some of the state’s ear­li­est build­ings, pro­vid­ing a glimpse into its rich colo­nial past. While his­tory is cool and all, it’s the ‘wild’ ex­pe­ri­ences of Port­land that will have you turn­ing your back on the Gold Coast and (bravely) head­ing south. For ex­am­ple, it’s not un­usual to be shar­ing a foot­path with a koala in this re­laxed coastal town! Some of re­gional Aus­tralia’s best wildlife ex­pe­ri­ences, in­clud­ing great whale watch­ing, div­ing gan­nets and world-class na­ture walks, will also be on your Port­land bucket list.
