kororoit creek historic fishing village, williamstown

Here’s a little Westie history lesson! Did you know about this hidden little old fishing village? It has been around for about 100 years and was the site of the first boat hire business in Melbourne - which ferried the fancy folk to the old racecourse to watch Phar Lap run. It sits overlooking Kororoit Creek and is dotted with old boat sheds and rickety jetty’s. Mamma loves the character here but can also see some great potential too, so it’s definitely worth exploring! Come down and try some fishing here too - all are welcome and there are angling clubs so it’s clearly a great spot to throw a line in - Mamma even knows of a top notch restaurant or two that MAY get their seafood here…. It is pretty quiet most of the time so bring a buddy.

A wonderful art piece by the Hobsons Bay Arts Society has just been showing here for a couple of weeks but it is apparently coming down today! (Dec 30). So if you dont get a chance to see it, here are some more pics…

Mamma’s special mention: Just further along the road you can take a wander into the west side of Jawbone Reserve, check out the bird hide and head along the path of the Saltmarsh at Paisley-Challis.
