This small suburb is only 5 square kilometres and it’s a hop, skip and a jump from Melbourne CBD making this the perfect location to live, to work and of course to socialise!
This small suburb is filled with many different cultures and it is interesting to know that only approximately 50% speak English at home. This once well-known suburb for its ever alarming crime rate is well on its way to a complete 360 with people flocking to the suburb wanting to scoop up available real estate at alarming rates!
If you are looking for somewhere to grab a bite to eat or coffee, perhaps one of the 130+ restaurants/cafes could satisfy your needs and whilst wondering through the streets of Footscray, don’t forget to look around and admire the amazing graffiti art.
Footscray is also home to many wonderful and well known icons, such as the Heavenly Queen of Footscray, the Western Bulldogs, Franco Cozzo and the Melbourne Market which has been home for many fruit, flower and fish traders for over 50 years until its recent relocation to Epping – but what will become of this valuable land site and the iconic signage?
