About the Port
Port of Portland is Victoria’s only naturally deep-water port, providing a logistics gateway to the rest of Australia and the world, with connectivity to national road and rail networks. Strategically located on the southwest coast between Melbourne and Adelaide, Port of Portland is one of Australia’s busiest regional ports.
Specialising in the export of bulk commodity products, Port of Portland services the thriving agriculture, sustainable forestry and mining industries across the Wimmera-Mallee, Green Triangle and Murray Basin regions which extend from northern and western Victoria to south-east South Australia.
It is the largest sustainable hardwood chip export port in the world, and with throughput volumes hitting 7.5 million tonnes in 2016-17, is a major economic contributor to both Victorian and South Australian regional communities.
Port of Portland provides its import and export customers with flexible, multi-use and efficient berths and a gateway to international markets in China, Japan, Korea, Indonesia and Taiwan as well as other Australian regions.
The Port currently handles seven commodities including sustainable forestry products, livestock, grain, mineral sands, fertiliser, smelter products and wind turbines.
It is positioned to service the growing population of nearly half a million people and the region’s increasing export industries.
