Our history

The first sale of town plots in Portarlington took place on October 22nd 1851, mainly by squatters and Geelong businessmen who intended their purchases as investments.

A public jetty was built in 1859 and a variety of goods were shipped directly to Melbourne and the township became the focus of Geelong and Melbourne people seeking it as a “seaside resort.”
