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.
