Like most millennial’s, you’re probably working 4 jobs, 2 internships and studying full time… The closest thing you’ve had to a holiday is having a beer after work.

Here at Amawind, we say NO MORE! You DESERVE a holiday, nay, a LUXURY holiday! Even if it’s just for 3 days.

We’ve done our research and we’ve come across a series of accommodation, activities and food spots that you can tick off in just a few days!

What makes a restaurant the “best.” Who decides this? As local foodies, the small team at Amawind Apartments have made it our mission to seek out the best spots you can enjoy whilst you stay in Williamstown. 

The Strand

A relaxed little gem located in Ferguson Street, centre of Williamstown. Mez Mez specialises in middle eastern dishes and goes for around $40 a head. We love Mez Mez due to the intimate setting and quality of the dishes.

Kodama Coffee
One thing that never goes a stray when it comes to living in Melbourne, and that is the incredible coffee we distribute. Our guests are constantly raving about our friends down at Kodama Coffee having the best coffee in town! We personally love soy flat white with one, alongside a scrumptious Acai Bowl or a burger with the lot.

We aren’t experts, but we know that everyone deserves a holiday, even if it just for 3 days! Why not visit Williamstown, located just 10 minutes out of Melbourne’s CBD!
