Overview

The Customs House, built between 1873 and 1875, indicates the importance of shipping in Williamstown in the late 1800s:  it is where large vessels were able to unload cargo. Today this beautifully restored building in the heart of the historic waterfront precinct houses a gallery featuring both original contemporary and traditional art. In addition to the three individual gallery spaces with monthly exhibits, there is also a range of Australian designer and estate jewelery for sale, along with sculpture, ceramics, textiles, glass and contemporary design wares. There is even a fully licensed restaurant for the tired and hungry tourist!
