Williamstown is a suburb with a resort-like feel to it. It is extremely close to the water but also has trains into the city so you get the best of both worlds. Those travelling from throughout Melbourne can easily access the venues in this area. As this area is perfectly placed, the prices only seem to be going up with even more luxury development in terms of shops and restaurants. This is not a beach area but rather one that is located near the sea with fishermen’s boats and yachts in the harbour. This harbour offers trendy restaurants surrounding the area offering a selection of seafood and high-end event options.
There is never a lack of things to do in Williamstown and the venues reflect this variety and pace. The options range from pubs and bars to yacht clubs and fancy restaurants that overlook the water. There are also venues that are designed using a theme and reflecting the Botanic Gardens that are in the area. You can expect venues to have nautical decorations and styles as well as modern, sleek options for any kind of celebration. The water near the venues creates a natural romance for couples and an intimacy for families and friends that are having small gatherings. There are also plenty of options for larger parties with open decks and dining areas. The different options offered within a single venue make this the perfect place to have a traditional wedding and reception that can flow from drinks to dinner and then dancing.
The surroundings and the prestige of the area make it ideal for upscale parties like corporate lunches or gatherings. While there are other areas of the city that focus on business, Williamstown has all of the luxury of a sophisticated area while also acting like a getaway from the city. This is what makes Williamstown such a popular place to hold events for those that don’t live in the area.
