Williamstown: Where to go and what to do when your Melbourne airport transfer arrives

Williamstown combines all the modern attractions of Melbourne, with a quieter community feel. That is demonstrated nowhere better than the Williamstown Festival. The festival is a celebration of all that makes Williamstown unique, and it’s well worth a visit if it coincides with your time in the city. In addition to the festival, Williamstown boasts an array of tempting dining opportunities. Perhaps its biggest claim, though, is historical in nature. Williamstown was Victoria’s first port settlement, and that shows to this day. It proudly displays its heritage in an iconic maritime museum, which showcases much of what makes Williamstown what it is today.
