Melbourne Yarra River Cruise to Williamstown Gem Pier – Australia Part 4





Melbourne (Yarra River) & Port Philip Bay Cruise to (Williamstown) (Gem Pier) – Part 4/4

Join me on this exciting Yarra River Boat Cruise continuing towards the Williamstown Gem Pier ( Melbourne Australia) January 2019.
Gem Pier is an historic pier on Port Phillip Bay, in Williamstown, Victoria, Australia. The pier is 145 metres (476 ft) in length and is currently home to the (Williamstown ship museum) – HMAS Castlemaine and Melbourne Seaplanes.

The first pier was built in 1839 near the present-day Gem Pier. Originally known as “The Jetty”, in 1853 it was renamed “Old Pier” following the construction of the “New Pier” (the Ann Street Pier). Throughout the 1860s and 1870s it was known as “Steamboat Pier”. In the 1870s it was renamed “Gem Pier” after the paddle steamer Gem that ran a ferry service from Williamstown to Port Melbourne from 1846 to 1886.

The pier was rebuilt in 1992.

Looking for a more relaxing way to enjoy the trip from Melbourne to Williamstown than catching a crowded train or negotiating busy streets in the car? The Williamstown ferry services offered by Melbourne River Cruises will get you to your destination in style in just under an hour. We begin at the Southbank Promenade near the arts precinct and travel along our wonderful Yarra River. Tourists and travellers unfamiliar with the city will encounter some of our most notable attractions includingCrown Casino, the Westgate Bridge, the Exhibition Centre, and Polly Woodside.

45 to 60 minutes later, our Melbourne to Williamstown ferry will arrive at the picturesque Port Phillip Bay, where you can either choose to disembark and explore Williamstown (you can make the return trip later), or stay on board, sit back, and enjoy one of the finest bay cruises in Melbourne as we return to Southbank.
