Camping near Portland guide

Overview

As New South Wales’ historic cement-making centre, Portland boasts the title of “The Town that Built Sydney” (and likely many more of the state’s cities, too). Today, traces of Portland’s 19th-century heritage are confined to the Signs of Yesteryear that you’ll see displayed along Wolgan Street, and the quirky artworks are one of the town’s biggest attractions. But you probably won’t spend much time in the town itself, anyway. Surrounded by miles of nature reserves, conservation areas, and lakes, Portland has great bushwalking, birdwalking, and fishing right on its doorstep. Drive a little bit further, and you can explore the hiking trails and glow worm tunnels of Wollemi National Park or admire the dramatic rocks and sweeping valleys of Blue Mountains National Park. Campers have plenty of options, too, including simple national park campgrounds, caravan or tourist parks with full amenities, or rural Hipcamps on local farms.
