About us

Located on The Strand in Williamstown and built over the water, the restaurant boasts numerous awards and has unbeatable views across the bay to the city.  The site of the marina was the original Parson's boat shed that was built in the 1890's.  Parsons ran a boat hire and marine services business catering to the numerous tall ships and steam ships that used to frequent Hobson's Bay.  The old boat shed is still within the restaurant structure which has evolved over the years.

 

The original marina was builts in the 1940's and has seen a few face lists since that time.  The biggest face lift however was completed in 2005 with the demolition of the old timber and concrete structure and the introduction of a much needed 90 berth floating marina facility renamed The Anchorage Marina.

 

The state of the art Bellingham Marina includes berths ranging from 8m to 23m in length and offers shore power, internet camera, security, wireless internet access and 20 dedicated visitors berths.  We have strong business relationships with all marine services and offer access to these services to ur berth holders.

 

The Anchorage was opened officially in December, 2005 by the Premier Steve Bracks after 3 years seeking approvals and permits and 14 months of construction including dredging 38,000 tonnes of silt and removing 6,800 tonne of rock, constructing a new marina office and carpark facility.  The Anchorage Marina is conveniently located between the River & The Bay and prides itself on being Melbourne‚Äôs friendliest marina.

The marina has both an award winning restaurant. The  restaurant also boasts all-weather outdoor dining with the recent installation of automated louvres, fixed heating and wind barriers - rain, hail or shine, you're welcome to pull up a chair on the Anchorage Deck.
