Ten minutes up the road from the Black Gold Motel’s clean and comfortable accommodation, Portland sits high above sea level amidst nature reserves and national parks. If you want to explore historic Portland, then the Black Gold Motel makes the perfect base.
Like much of the region, Portland is rich with natural beauty and cultural significance for the Wiradjuri and others. You will also find historic buildings within the township. Portland is a historic mining centre, but it was the discovery of local limestone deposits, and the subsequent establishment of cement production that earnt it fame as, “The town that built Sydney”.
You might be in the region to explore the “Signs of Yesteryear” – the impressive murals that feature advertising signs from 1895 to 1945, and that now grace the buildings of Portland. Maybe you are here for a site tour of the Mt Piper Power Station, or you could be in the region for the vineyards, boutique farms, four-wheel-driving or bushwalking tracks.
Whatever your plans, you will need a comfortable base – so why not make it the Black Gold Motel? Portland is just up the road, and we serve breakfast and dinner in our Lamp Room Lounge and Crib Room Restaurant to fuel your adventures.
Whether you are from the local area, and want a centrally located conference venue, or you are from further afield, and are searching for an event venue in a refreshing country location, we can help. You can book a function room alongside accommodation for your guests, or make a standalone booking for a Black Gold’s function venue near Portland and other Central Tablelands attractions.
