Visit Melbourne’s historic first sea port on an exciting return sightseeing cruise to Williamstown.

Departing from the Southbank Promenade, guests can enjoy a relaxing cruise along the wonderful Yarra River and encounter attractions such as the Crown Casino, the Westgate Bridge, the Exhibition Centre and Polly Woodside along the journey. After cruising for just under an hour on our comfortable vessel with large viewing windows, we will arrive at the picturesque Port Phillip Bay.

Guests have the option of disembarking at Williamstown to explore the area for a while then returning on a later ferry or alternatively, you are welcome to stay onboard and sit back and relax. Williamstown is a popular seaside attraction that’s steeped in history and still maintains a strong maritime feel. Visit its many beaches and beautiful parks, enjoy some delicious food from the variety of restaurants or hit the shops for some retail therapy. Williamstown is well worth a visit.

Fantastic trip

Really good value. Half price by booking on line. Fascinating commentary. Unfortunately the WW11 Castlemaine wasn’t open. It’s only open at weekends. Very helpful tourist info at Gem Pier. Lovely walk along coast. Thoroughly recommend.
