Welcome to the WMA
The Williamstown Maritime Association is a not-for-profit organisation established in 2004, with the aim of establishing a working maritime precinct called Seaworks on the former Port of Melbourne Authority site in Melbourne’s historic port of Williamstown.

The WMA established the famous Pirates Tavern in 2004, and has been managing the Tavern since then. Please pay a visit to the Tavern and learn more about our dream for a world-class maritime precinct in Melbourne. You can also help the cause by joining the Association, either via the membership link or by visiting the Tavern.

The Seaworks Foundation was initiated by the WMA as a body to oversee management and development of the site. The WMA works closely with the Foundation, with the maritime precinct as a priority.
