The Immigrants Wall is series of plaques which commemorate the early settlers of Portland. Only settlers who set foot on Australian soil at Portland qualify to have the plaques placed on the wall. 

37 ships carrying assisted migrants arrived at Portland between 1851 and 1857. A few migrants arrived on the Francis Henty and the Cornelius and a few others jumped ship at Portland. These qualify, however proof needs to be provided.
