Heywood  is a town on the Fitzroy River. The town of Heywood services a wide area, and has a bustling town centre, complete with lovely streetscaping and an abundance of rose bushes. Part way between Portland and Casterton on the Princes Highway, Heywood is a place of significant cultural importance, and is also home to the popular Wood, Wine and Roses Festival.  Heywood is a great base for a drive to Mt Eccles National Park. It is also close to the Lake Condah Mission, a significant aboriginal site, and cultural tours of the Budj Bim National Heritage Landscape are offered through Budj-Bim Tours.

Portland is the only deep-water sea port between Adelaide and Melbourne, making it a major centre for sea transport of goods and produce from the surrounding areas. A large sheltered harbour provides calm waters for a marina, wharves and shipping berths. Portland is a place of historic discovery with over 200 buildings within the town classified by the National Trust, many of which are constructed out of bluestone.
