Portland....approximately a 4 hour drive from Melbourne, is quite possibly the most interesting town on the Victorian coastline and I bet you've probably never been there?

* It is the best location for Bluefin Tuna fishing in the world, that sets the hearts thumping of died in the wool fishermen every year from April till July.

* The site of the first European settlement in Victoria, a town of historical buildings and a cable tram that still has stories of the past to tell!

* Beautiful gardens, magical walks, great pies! Great old Australian architecture, pubs, cafes and restaurants. The best thing though is Portland is so wonderfully beautiful, but so not overwhelmed by tourists.

* Cape Nelson Light House has the most amazing views....do not miss visiting here, sun or gloom it is spectacular!

* If you're a Hiker...The Great Southern Walk begins here! 250km trail that begins and ends at the Portland Maritime Discovery and Information Centre. It takes in 3 National parks, aboriginal heritage sites, the Southern Ocean and much more!

* In the Summer holidays, there is a Carnival set up right on the foreshore where the Portland Maritime Discovery and Information Centre is. Fun for all the family, day and night.

* Rev Heads look out...there's also the Southern 500 Speedway in Portland, tickets are very affordable and catering for families as well. Access to Pit gates is also available so you can get right up close to the action!

* A quick 20 min drive to Cape Bridgewater is home to the only seal cage-diving experience in the world! The seals can get in...the cage keeps the sharks out! While you're there you can do some whale watching and keep a look out for the albino kangaroos!

* If you want to spread your wings a little further, Portland is the perfect base to visit some of Victoria's iconic tourist hotspots...you are a stone's throw from The 12 Apostles, The Great Ocean Road and The Grampians National Park.

* The Grampians are just under 3 hours drive from Portland and are home to an abundance of incredible nature. Places like The Pinnacle is one of the most popular Lookouts in Victoria, but is probably one of the most challenging to reach...mind you it is family friendly so it is worth a go and it's only a 4.8km trail and worth every step!

* MacKenzie Falls is wheelchair accessible and is the only waterfall in The Grampians with waterflow all year round...so visit Summer or Winter, you're in for a treat!

* Believe it or not, Halls Gap is home to a Zoo with over 160 native and exotic animals and is Victoria's largest regional zoo...so don't forget to stop by and spend some time getting to know your fellow Australians!

* And for those that are into the creepy and macabre, there is also J-Ward which was once a jail back in the mid 19th Century but was converted to a maximum security psychiatric ward for the criminally insane in 1887. It continued to house and treat Victoria's mentally ill right up until 1991 when it finally closed it's doors. You can take a tour through the facility or if you're brave enough why not take a ghost tour...some say there are still patients living at the hospital!!

* What's a trip to The Grampians without visiting the Wine Region...home to some of the State's unique and varied Cellar doors, some of which date back to the 1800's.

So what are you waiting for? Explore Victoria and come on down to Portland, there is so much to do and even more...you will be pleasantly surprised by what you find :)

A hely
When you arrive at our property, you arrive to an inviting home with manicured lawns and gardens, plenty of parking for cars, boats, trailers, caravans...you name it!

There is a beautiful slate feature chimney that steals the limelight at the front of the property. As you walk up to the front door, you will notice the Meter box located on the wall to the left and on the front door side, is a lock box which holds the key to the property. (Code will be provided prior to Check in).

The leadlight windows which lets some light into the small foyer you walk into as you enter. The foyer itself is minimally, yet tastefully furnished and leads you into the heart of the house. From here you can go either left or right with the house divided into living area on the right side and sleeping areas on the left.

In taking you on this tour, we will visit the living areas first, so moving left we enter into an open plan lounge/dining area, which is big enough for 2 x 3 seater couches that face opposite each other and are adorned with the comfiest of cushions and throw rugs. A lovely jute mat on the floor and a massive Smart TV on the wall which is connected to Wifi so you can watch as much unlimited Netflix as you like!

There is also a lovely gas pebble fire/heater in the wall and some beautiful pieces of artwork on the walls to give the area a pleasant 'lived in' feel. Walking through the lounge area, at the end of the room is a massive dining table that seats 8, places are already laid with dinnerware, cutlery and glassware, along with a complimentary bottle of wine to start your holiday in the best possible way!

Just around the corner from the dining table is a cute breakfast nook with a round table and 3 chairs, which is great for that leisurely breakfast and reading the paper or having a chat with a fellow guest.

Continuing on, you walk into, a fully fitted out kitchen with all modern appliances from fridge that includes a water cooler, coffee machine, microwave, kettle, toaster, dishwasher, gas cooktop/electric oven and double sink. In the pantry are some cooking basics such as olive oil, pepper & salt, alfoil, glad wrap etc. There is also dishwashing detergent and Chux along with a dishwasher tablet.

Cupboards are plentiful and are full of all the necessities required to enjoy your holiday such as dinnerware, glasses (wine, beer & tumblers), plastic dinnerware & cups for children, cutlery, utensils, bowls and containers.

Now that we've done a walkthrough of the practical end of the house, we'll head back through the lounge and check out the other end and you will soon see for yourself that it is just as stylish, comfortable and accommodating.

Firstly as we head past the foyer, on the right hand side is the laundry, which is complete with an under bench front loading washing machine and a clothes dryer. A good size bench for sorting your laundry and a tub for any hand washing you may need to do. The external exit to the back yard also runs off the laundry, which we'll come back to soon.

Moving on, the next room on the right is the huge bathroom...it is outstanding in so many ways, it's hard to pick what is your favourite thing about it!

* Is it the huge free standing bath tub with the bath caddy sitting on it just waiting for you to hop in and soak away the days adventures, maybe some bubble, a book or some music to relax by or;

* Is it the magnificent vanity with the makeup lights all around the mirror that is simply amazing to see and even has a USB port in the side of it, so you can play your own music or lastly;

* Is it the oversize shower that allows you the freedom to move around and feel the full force of the steaming hot water invigorating your body and making you feel fresh and vibrant?

You will just have to choose for yourself...it's too hard for me to decide!

So, if you can drag yourself out of the bathroom, we'll head to the bedrooms....

This house has been designed with a bedding configuration that will suit a variety of guest groups in mind:

Bedroom 1: Queen Size Bed
Bedroom 2: 2 x Single Beds
Bedroom 3: 1 x Triple Bunk (Double on the bottom/single on the top) and 1 x King Single

The Master bedroom with it's Queen sized bed is beautifully adorned with more pillows, cushions and a plush throw rug that you could possibly need. There is a stunning piece of artwork above the bed and at the foot of the bed is a TV cabinet with TV for the ultimate in decadence and comfort.

The 2nd bedroom has 2 x single beds, suitable for children or adults alike, also with cushions and throw rugs on each bed. This room also has a magnificent piece of artwork above the beds.

The 3rd bedroom, has the triple bunk along with a King Single bed with stylish artwork and cushions and a throw on each bed and again can be used by children or adults. This room also contains a desk and chair, so if you are on a work trip you will also have a nice quiet place where you can set up your laptop and get some work done when you need to.

In between the Master bedroom and Bedroom 2 is the separate toilet (there is also a toilet in the bathroom), so no having to wait for someone to finish in the bathroom when nature calls.

Now, if you're not already so excited that you have already booked this home, let's head out the back, where men, women and children can have an amazing time.

Stepping out to the backyard through the laundry is a neat pebbled area, which keeps the grass and dirt from being traipsed into the house. From there head down to the back of the house and there is a large expanse of lawn....large enough that you can park a boat or even a caravan out there as there is double gate access to the yard.

There is a large covered in deck area complete with a barbeque and table & chairs, along with a huge modular lounge suite that would comfortably seat 8 and also has plenty of outdoor cushions so you're just as comfy outside as you are inside.

There is a single car garage, however it's not suitable for a car as it has been converted into a man cave, with a couch, fishing rod holder, large fridge and huge chest freezer for those big catches of Bluefin tuna, the fishermen bring in.
All in all, this is a home for everybody, if you're in Portland to fish, if you've never been to Portland before...

There is so much to do; if you're passing through heading to the Great Ocean Road or if you're on your way up to the Grampians...singles, couples, families...are all welcome.

This home will be constantly booked out, so don't waste time, jump on line and get your reservation NOW!
