We went by ferry from southbank to Williamstown which was really interesting. When we got there we had a look around, had some lovely fish and chips for lunch and then got the ferry back. We spent aroun 2 hours there which was plenty to see all we wanted to see.

Took the family to Williamstown for lunch and enjoyed a beautiful Veal dish that delighted my tastebuds. A little bit trendy now but with great views and a choice of 2 ice creameries to finish.

Came down to spend some time with friends and were pleasantly surprised. It's an interesting place with a mix of very affluent locals and a slightly edgier crowd. Some great cafes, good pubs, walking distance to everything and a nice waterfront. Also not far for a trip in to town should you wish.

We took a train from Southern Cross Station for $6 return using our Myki cards. It took about 45 mins with a change at Newport. We didn't see any signs at the station but figured out that the beach was on one side and the town on the other. We paid a visit to the information centre in the town... More

We were taken there by some friends who live in the area so we got the insiders view. It provides a lovely view to the city and the food there is really good. It's a very pleasant place to visit with a nice atmosphere. The tram boat is a funny thing to see!

Even though this is considered to be a "suburb" of Melbourne, it is a truly lovely, idyllic location on a lazy Saturday or Sunday visit (day or night) Quaint speciality stores on the strips, lots of colourful characters, and some pretty yummy cafes & eateries. Walk down to the pier, feed the seagulls, view the berthed destroyer ship, or just... More
