  • Portland is noted for its’ national and state heritage and geological value
  • In 1863 Thomas Murray established the first site of the cement works and by 1894 Portland was gazetted as a village 
  • The Old Cement Works (with various name changes and lastly known as Blue Circle Southern Cements Works) was famous from as early as 1901 until 1991 for producing rare white cement and some 18 million tons of cement was quarried 
  • We are known as “the town that built Sydney” and our special cement was also used in the new Parliament House in Canberra
  • No 20 Williwa Street, in the row of old Cement Work Houses is said to be haunted
  • There were originally four Bottle Kilns built around 1888. Two are still standing on the original site which today is closed parkland around a dam that is home to local wildlife.  Raffins’ Mill can be seen housed in the old stone building also on the site
