The suburb of Williamstown has the feel of a seaside village but is only 9km from the city centre. It sits on a peninsula jutting out into the bay with the mouth of Melbourne's main river, the Yarra, on one side. Water is on three sides and can be walked to in a couple of minutes. On one side is the port area which has restaurants, bars and pubs, a park and a jetty. Another side offers large open spaces for a quiet walk in wide open spaces by the water or on the rocks. The third side has the botanical gardens, picnic areas and a sandy beach for swimming.
There are many beautiful walks around Williamstown.
Williamstown is one of the oldest parts of Melbourne. Our house is on the list of sites on the Williamstown Historical Society tour of the suburb. The suburb is rich in history as the primary port for Melbourne for many years and now one of it's premier tourist destinations. The suburb is full of pubs and churches. Our house was the first Presbyterian church, before being repurposed as the Minister's house and then many families have converted the house. From our house you can walk to our local pub 'The Stag' that was first built in 1849 for a beer, glass of wine or meal without crossing a road.
