Portland Foreshore Toilets

Consultation has concluded

Public exhibition of the artwork designs for the Portland foreshore toilets has now closed.

All submissions were presented to Council at the 24 May Ordinary Council meeting with Council endorsing option three (3) as the preferred design for the exterior of the new Portland foreshore toilets.

The theme symbolises the 38 immigrant ships which arrived in Portland over a six year period from 1851 to 1857. More than 11,000 assisted immigrants arrived during this period from Great Britain, settling largely in the Western District.

The design concepts include larger than life silhouettes of a family arriving on-shore and various names of the vessels which arrived over the settlement period, including the Clara, Bloomer and Nestor in 1854.
