Rediscover our history during heritage festival
SOME of the region’s maritime, transport and religious history will be on display during this year’s National Trust Heritage Festival.
More than 1000 events will be held state-wide from now until Sunday, May 19, including seven unique events in Portland and Heywood.
Among the festivities are open days at the Powerhouse Car and Motor Museum, Cape Nelson Lighthouse and Anglican Church in Portland and the Pioneer Wagon Shed in Heywood.
A guided walk of Julia St takes places on Sunday, followed by a presentation on Portland’s rich banking history and a whale boat tour of the harbour in May.
