Hi David 

 

Welcome aboard mate.

 

Lots of great forums and some very knowledgeable people to learn from here 

 

And the classified’s are a great place to pick up some bargains, but you will have to make a few posts before your given access to them. 

 

Enjoy

It does get sunny in Portland, then it rains again, then it's sunny and then rain again.   One sure thing though is that the rain will always come from the west.

Hi David,  

 

Welcome.  Lovely place Portland.  Moved the family to Portland in 2007 for two years until the GFC hit and significantly reduced the projects happening at the aluminium smelter.  Kids loved the country lifestyle.  I also enjoyed listening to my HiFI on the cold winter nights with a glasses of red from just over the border.

No, we left Portland in 2009 due to the reduction in work.

Alcoa still owns and operates the smelter.

yes the smelter is still stumbling along but it is a year to year situation.

 

Still if you can handle the weather and find a way to pay your bills it is a great place to live.

All jokes about the weather aside I quite like Portland. I have a relative who was a tradie at the smelter and is now doing something he likes much better in town. If I was going to the country Western Vic is high on the list.
