As one of Melbournes oldest suburbs, Williamstown has such a rich and colourful history. From Nelson place being built by convicts, to Gem Pier being Melbourne’s first seaport. Here at the Seaworks Maritime Museum, some of that history has been preserved so that our generation get to appreciate it. There are plenty of amazing artefacts, and ship models to see - but the most interesting thing are the tales that the men who run this museum tell. Their passion for the maritime history of the area is clear, and you can spend lots of time just listening to these stories. This special place is worth a wander through next time you are in the area.
Mamma’s special mentions: Head for a play at Commonwealth Reserve afterwards.
