Williamstown is a suburb of Melbourne, Australia. It is situated approximately eight kilometres southwest of the business district of the area. This area is full of historic sites that date back to the beginnings of the country. You can explore the vibrant world of the docks and other historical areas and learn about Australia’s part in World War II and how they rebuilt following it. Take advantage of the charm of the historic Williamstown maritime village and dine at one of the waterfront restaurants whilst taking in the fantastic skyline view.
- Join in the festivities at the Williamstown Festival, an annual event held in March offering vibrant cultural fare and promotes the unique attributes that have served to make the town famous.
- Learn about what makes a maritime village run at the Polly Woodside Maritime Museum in Melbourne, and check out the Polly Woodside Barque, a restored cargo vessel from 1885.
- Tour the Railway Museum in Melbourne and its collection of Victorian Railways steam locomotives, country passenger carriages, and more.
Visitors to Williamstown arrive at Melbourne Airport, the only international airport for the area. Williamstown is about 15 minutes by car from Melbourne if you take the West Gate Freeway, or you can take the train from Flinders Street Station, which will take you about 30 minutes and provide a more scenic ride. If you want to experience authentic local flare, take the ferry from Southgate Arts and Leisure Precinct; the trip takes about one hour but is a delightful means of transport. You can also take bus 472 from Footscray to Williamstown.
