Minister for Ports, Luke Donnellan and Member for Williamstown, Wade Noonan visited Seaworks in Williamstown to mark the completion of renovation works across the historic seaport site.

The Andrews Government invested $3 million to upgrade the site which has delivered substantial improvements, including:

  • A new all-access lift
  • Stunning glass doors across the rear of the main building
  • Upgraded services
  • New toilets
  • Modernised entrance
  • A new mezzanine level event space
  • Upgrades to multi-purpose activity areas

Seaworks promotes Victoria’s maritime history on a prime waterfront location in Williamstown. The site is a working deep-water port and Melbourne’s key mooring site for visiting local and international tall ships and other historic vessels.

Seaworks provides a place for recreational, educational, tourism, cultural and commercial activities, attracting Victorian, interstate and overseas visitors.

The Seaworks precinct is a magnificent setting already in high demand for a diverse calendar of cultural, food and wine, and vibrant events that engage and resonate with the broader community across metropolitan Melbourne.

The not-for-profit Seaworks Foundation is chaired by Trevor Huggard and its Patron is former Victorian Premier, Steve Bracks.
