To visit Footscray is akin to taking a culinary (and cultural) trip around the globe. From Vietnamese bakeries to African hair salons – this vibrant suburb is an ode to multicultural Melbourne. And while gentrification is fast changing the face of this much-loved locale, the improving infrastructure and proliferation of brilliant restaurants, cafés and bars bode well for the future.
Set in the city’s increasingly fashionable west, Footscray is as diverse as it is colourful. Once the somewhat rough and ready domain of the Greek and Italian migrant communities, it’s now home to everyone from Vietnamese to East Africans and a lively student crowd.
