Port Victoria

  • Anyone with a love for the sea and its history must visit Port Victoria, the last of the windjammer ports. For over 70 years, grain was loaded onto magnificent sailing ships bound for Europe via Cape Horn. The Pamir and Passat were the last two ships to leave in 1949 on the last commercial voyage worldwide. The last grand era of sail is evoked in the local museum which has a large collection of photographs and artefacts. Today, the town is a paradise for fishers and divers alike, with eight shipwrecks around Wardang Island forming the Wardang Island Maritime Heritage
