Historic Williamstown Doggy Ferry and Walking Tours

Join in the fun with other Peeps and Paws with a ferry ride from St Kilda to Williamstown onboard the Coastal Flyer. Then we are off to explore the history of Williamstown on a guided 5km walk. Relax with your fellow Peeps and Paws with fish and chips on the foreshore. Return to a bygone era and find out about the ghosts who wander the pubs, the hulks who housed the prisoners and the rich, colourful maritime past. An easy walk which is doggo pram friendly.
