Williamstown is the first town encountered when heading west from Gawler. Williamstown is a small town and for the most part has the essential services. Williamstown is in a valley and cool climate features are ever present.

Heritage factors are clearly important at Williamstown.

Williamstown was originally known as Victoria Creek. The reason for the change was not identified.

The churches in Williamstown are all near 150 year old buildings.

The Williamstown Historic Hotel is the classic tavern design building. The license has been in operation for well over 100 years.

The town is small but there is reason to pause and enjoy what is a leafy, cool and relaxed environment.
