5 of Our Favorite Melbourne Beaches

Idyll is a great big thing in the world’s most livable city.

Williamstown isn’t only great for a ice cream, fish and chips or taking a gander at the crafts on show. It offers a great vantage point to admire the beauty of Melbourne’s CBD from the outside in.


The beach is perfect for a relaxing dip, however deep or shallow. Williamstown is around 20 minutes from the CBD (by drive) but will take about 40 minutes on the train.
