Stretching around its deep-water port, Portland marries charming coastal life with the serenity of national parks, spectacular seaside scenery and the facilities of a small city. It has a range of primary and secondary schools. This combination of coastal, rural and low-density urban living makes Portland an ideal place to live, work and raise a family.
