Anchorage Marina comes of age – again!

'The Anchorage Marina in Williamstown is celebrating its 121st birthday.'    . ©
The Anchorage Marina in Williamstown is celebrating its 121st birthday and has big plans to party for the whole of October.

With an incredible month of festivities planed including free berthing deals for visitors, happy hour on Fridays and Saturdays, boating events and a massive raft up party; Williamstown at the Anchorage is the place to be in October.

Founded in 1891 as Parson’s Boat Shed and Marina, the iconic location on The Strand has changed very little over such a long period of time.

The Restaurant was opened in the 70’s and became known as the Anchorage with the O’Hare family purchasing the site in 1983; the marina underwent a total rebuild in 2005 to a state of the art 97 berth floating marina and the restaurant has just completed a total makeover in time for the big celebrations.

With its unique location as the most northern marina in Port Phillip Bay, The Anchorage offers direct access to the bay and is situated at the mouth of the Yarra River.

The marina manager Scott O’Hare says 'Boating in Melbourne is all about taking advantage of the weather conditions when you can, it is important for boat owners to make the most of their limited leisure time and from the Anchorage, within 10 minutes of stepping on board, they can be cruising across the bay to a favourite location or on their way up-river towards the city.'

Historic Williamstown offers a whole range of shops, restaurants and activities; and is only 20 minutes from the CBD. The Anchorage marina offers free parking, free wireless internet, and remote access security system and is re-known for its social, friendly atmosphere.

'We are excited about our month long birthday bash in October and invite everyone in Melbourne to come and join in the fun. Boat clubs, previous berth holders, new visitors and trailer boat owners are all welcome,' says O’Hare. 'We will have all sorts of things going on with dock parties, door prizes and giveaways, try boating days, kids events and special deals such as 20% off meals at the restaurant.'

Details of the big 121st birthday bash can be found on the Anchorage website at www.anchoragewilliamstown.com.au or call (03) 9397 4740.
