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”.
