Historic Williamstown is Melbourne's own seaside village. Great restaurants and bars, there's lots to do and see. Variety of eating establishments and always a good place to visit in summer for a beer or ice-cream. A must do for visitors to Melbourne, especially in summer.

We travelled by ferry up to Williamstown. I was pleasantly surprised how lovely the town was. We visited Information and they gave us walking maps. We wandered all around the town in a few hours and caught the ferry back to Melbourne.
