Portland Roads was (is?) the nearest port to Iron Range/ Lockhart River and is about 20 miles to the northeast of that place. I think "Roads" gets its name from an old English definition for a a piece of water near shore where ships can ride at anchor.

I hope this helps

Can anyone help me with more information?
