Gem Pier which was named after a paddle steamer that once operated between Williamstown and Port Melbourne, is located at the end of Syme Street. This long stone jetty was built in 1838. The original jetty has now been replaced. Many passenger ferries dock here to pick up and drop visitors traveling to Williamstown. You can also walk along the gangway of the WWII minesweeper HMAS Castlemaine which has now been converted into a museum.
