Welcome to Footscray

Footscray is a suburb (neighbourhood) 5 km west of Melbourne. Its local government area is the City of Maribyrnong, and has an estimated population of 14,000.

Footscray is characterised by a very diverse, multicultural central shopping area, which reflects the successive waves of immigration experienced by Melbourne, and by Footscray in particular. Once a centre for Greek, Italian and former Yugoslavian migrants, it later became a hub for Vietnamese and East African immigrants in Melbourne, but has recently begun to undergo gentrification.

Footscray is named after Foots Cray, on the River Cray in London, England.
