Summary

Footscray is a suburb 5 km west of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Its Local Government Area is the City of Maribyrnong. At the 2006 Census, Footscray had a population of 11,401.

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 Italian and former Yugoslavian migrants, it is now a hub for Vietnamese, and increasingly, East African immigrants in Melbourne.

Footscray is named after Foots Cray, a locality south-east of London on the River Cray in Kent.

Located in the inner west of Melbourne, Footscray is a multicultural community with a large Vietnamese population (13%).

The Western Hospital, one of the largest hospitals in Melbourne, is located in Footscray. More recent years have witnessed an increase in the number of couple families and overall gentrification of the suburb, due to its proximity to the city.
