The day was stunning on our visit to lovely Williamstown. The shops are great to browse, coffee and cake at a local cafe is a must. Great pubs with really good meals. The Information bureau was a really good way to find out information about the area. The old water fountain was amazing. Take a stroll along the jetty or... More

A very old area of Melbourne with beautiful heritage homes & delightful small tourist type shops. The ferry which goes along the Yarra to Crown Casino departs from here at certain times. As Williamstown is on a peninsula it doesn't get snarled up with through traffic but it does get very busy with destination traffic.

But, I felt a little disappointed because of services. the museum only opens from 2pm to 5pm on Sunday, I really I want to discover more about this... More

Looking back onto the city is the obvious reason to visit Williamstown - but please don't limit your visit to just looking back. Explore the streets and views of the town itself. there are fantastic restaurants and coffee shops and just a rel;axed and enjoyable experience.

Come here by boat and really experience Williamstown! It can get busy in summer but worth the visit. A handful of great restaurants nearby and one of the best views in Melbourne!

You can drive down to Williamstown over the Westgate Bridge. However, I favour taking my visitors on a boat journey down the Yarra to the maritime colonial town of Williamstown. There are several ferry / boat travel options with various Melbourne Cruise companies and others. We usually take an 11.30 ferry and return around 4.30 or 5pm after a superb... More

I used to love in this area, so went back for a visit 10 years later. Still beautiful and worth a look. The beach is lovely and there are lots of shops and things to do like the botanical gardens of you want to sit and relax.

Had a nice afternoon strolling around the town and having lunch, (must have the fish & chips), after a very pleasant cruise down the river in the ferry to Williamstown, caught from the Southbank precinct.

Williamstown is best in summer and on market day. You can catch a ferry to and from iconic StKilda (Also know for its Sunday market) You can grab some takeaway and sit in the park or relax at an alfresco cafe. The drive from city is short, but Ferry adds a relaxing water view to the journey.
