Welcome to the web site of the Portland Upwelling Festival, a celebration of the natural wonders brought to the town of Portland by the Bonney Upwelling. Presented by the Upwelling Festival Committee Inc., the Upwelling Festival is a free, one-day event in Portland, Victoria which offers a fantastic and vibrant way for the community and visitors to celebrate the unique features of our beautiful coastal town.
The Bonney Upwelling
Spring winds kick off a remarkable time in the waters off the coast of Portland. Through a combination of dynamic environmental events, these waters become the Bonney Upwelling, the richest marine feeding area in Australia.
