Newport Railway Workshops

This highly significant precinct, constructed in 1885 - 88, is listed on the Victorian Heritage Register (H1000). The Branch supports the continuation of the use of the site by Heritage Rail Groups and the eventual creation of a world-scale Heritage Rail Precinct

Hobsons Bay Heritage Study Review

the last Heritage Study for Hobsons Bay was published in 2017, and contains some notable omissions of highly significant places. The Branch supports the efforts of local historians and Williamstown Historical Society in contributing to a review of the Heritage Study by Hobsons Bay City Council.

Williamstown Shipyards & Alfred Graving Dock

With the wind-down of shipbuilding activities at the BAE shipyards in Williamstown there is the possibility that the land will be sold for development. The Williamstown shipyards has a long and interesting history dating back to 1858. The site also contains the 1874 Alfred Graving Dock listed in the Victorian Heritage Register. The Branch will continue to monitor developments at this important historic site.

B-24 Liberator Restoration Project

The B-24 Liberator restoration project is a group of volunteers restoring a World War II Liberator Bomber and is supported by the National Trust. Very few of these iconic planes survive, despite thousands being built during the war. The Branch is also a representative on the project management committee.
