During our time in Melbourne, we are actually staying in the suburb of Williamstown, 9 km southwest of the CBD. Western Melbourne is more industrial and less populated than the more popular eastern suburbs. Williamstown has a popular beach and rail line that provide quick access to the city center.
We spent a day getting to know the area, walking around town and along Bay Trail from the marina to Timeball Tower. Williamstown sits on the bay with panoramic views of Melbourne’s skyline. The coastline has a mixture of parklands, marinas, and industrial marine facilities. The neighborhoods appear to be a mix of traditional homes being replaced by new.
