Welcome to Portland, a perfect family and fishing destination at all times of the year.
Barleycorn Inn offers a casual and relaxed atmosphere and guests are provided with everything to make their stay enjoyable and comfortable. However of more importance is what you can do while you are here:!
While it can be common for guests to say they were reluctant to leave the house Barleycorn Inn is conveniently located within easy walking distance or 2 minutes drive to Portland's beaches, sporting facilities, shops and cafes and playparks.
With less that 100 metres to Portland Bay Clifftop reserve and the Great South West Walk nature enthusiasts, whale watchers and pet owners will be keen to explore.
Once in the car it is only minutes to Cape Bridgewater and Bridgewater Lakes - take time to explore some of the most pristinely beautiful and private beaches in the state including Whites, Blacks, Moors, Blacknose, Yellowrock Beaches and if you have a surfboard paddle out and catch a few sets (Portland has some of Australia's most highly regarded breaks).
Alternatively access some of the most inspiring walks along the cliffs at Cape Nelson Lighthouse or through the mystical greenery of the enchanted forest. Out on the other side of the bay at Cape Bridgewater drive through wind farms to explore unique petrified forests, blowholes and walk or take a bout tour to the land based Australian Fur Seal colony.
Coffee, great food and wine and entertainment can be found at cafes on both of these capes so reward yourself after your exploration.
For the fishermenwhat can we say - it is only 4 minutes drive to the ramps and if your family are along rest assured they will be happy and comfortable while you are gone.
And as we encourage our guests to get out and explore Port Fairy, Warrnambool, Nelson and Mount Gambier are all under 1 hours drive so make great day trip destinations.
At various times of the year prices can be negociated due to it being an owner/operated business so please contact Felicity with any requests.
