Cape Nelson lighthouse, Portland

#1 of 18 in Things to do in Portland
A location for the 2010 romantic drama "South Solitary," Cape Nelson lighthouse is the picture perfect image of a harrowing white tower at the edge of the sea. The beacon rises above heath covered hills among cottages that offer accommodations. Completed in 1884, the lighthouse is the savior of many a seaman sailing along the coast of Australia. It still stands as a monument to lighthouse keepers who have spent their evenings keeping the lamp lit. Plan my day in Portland using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

  • This was the first day of opening for this establishment so too early to comment. If enthusiasm makes success then they have the right ingredients.  more »
  • Nice view from the top of the light house. Watched the sunset from there one evening. Didn’t realise you could stay in the cottages there!  more »

  • Really interesting. It would be great to stay in the lighthouses keepers cottage. Very nice cafe there
  • Great view, a shame the cafe was closed at 3.30 on a Sunday afternoon. Would definitely recommend a look, if you are in Portland. But don't forget the aerogaurd lots of flys!
