    I love Williamstown! It such a hidden gem in Melbourne! I have never taken the ferry there though; that sounds so fun!
    The beach is stunning isn’t it!!

    Melbourne is one of my favourite getaway cities. I usually enjoy the shopping, laneway eateries and street art but I have not yet visited the historic areas. I think I will plan on visiting Williamstown next time I make it to Melbourne.

      Exactly – people know all about the modern side of Melbourne – and they’re great. But there are pockets of history too that are fantastic. Glad you’ll consider visiting!

    Great post. I haven’t done a ghost tour in ages, and those are so fun. I love the combination of convict-constructed towns, ice cream, botanical gardens….this town sounds fabulous!

    Sounds like an awesome idea for day trip – personally I knew only the modern places in Melbourne, it would be cool to see a little bit of history as well

      Yep Melbourne is famous for laneways, shopping, cafes and galleries.. but there are some historic pockets for a bit of good old fashioned sightseeing too!

    Williamstown looks like a wonderful getaway from Melbourne. I would definetly enjoy lounging on the beach and visiting the botanical gardens. Taking the ghost lantern tour would be super fun too! I can’t wait to visit Australia one day. 🙂
