caught the river taxi at Crown across, did lunch, walked the tourist walk, excellent day out. The trip across, under the Westgate bridge was wonderful. Pick a sunny day.

Williams town has a few very good eating places. The Hotel is very good for lunch and afterwards you can buy a yummy ice cream and walk through the park where you may see possums who seem un afraid to come up,for a treat. A walk along the pier is very nice too with large ships often docked there.

Great day trip, just a 1 hour ferry ride from the city transports you to this quaint village with some nice shopping and cafes.

Take a nice boat ride threw the Harbor. This cute water front area is a lot of fun. There are many things to do. From shopping, to eating to taking a boat ride on the water. You are sure you enjoy this area!
