About this Event

Clad in a raincoat, hat and gumboots, the fictitious character Willy was a familiar figure around the town on weekends in a time when the Depression gave little scope for the things kids take for granted today. He is like a ‘Where’s Wally’ but he’s there and he’s the spirit of Williamstown; the spirit of being brought up in Williamstown as kids. The paintings tell a timeless story of Willy and Williamstown. Williamstown provides him with all the things he needs. He could be seen at the beach, fishing, in a boat, or the train station or in any number of places in Williamstown where kids his age congregate and have fun.

Subjects of other paintings will include the Point Gellibrand lighthouse, which was destroyed in 1976, and the building of the Timeball Tower in the 1840s.

Little Willy's journey and haunting memories of this bygone era sees a collaboration between local historian Geoff Dougall and artist Daryl Fox.

Please note, exhibition is only open Sunday, Wednesday and Friday from 11am-3pm
