About West Footscray

The friendly vibe of West Footscray is what has attracted its many locals to settle here. Located just 8 kilometres west of Melbourne, the unique and quirky charm of this community is widespread. With a thriving multicultural community, a vibrant cafe culture and easy access to the city. With a mix of Victorian and Edwardian-era homes and new builds, it’s a high demand market popular with investors, owner occupiers and renters, particularly university students. There are also a surprising number of green spaces, given its proximity to the city. The most popular green space for some being the Witten Oval, training home to the west’s beloved AFL team, the Western Bulldogs. Barkly Village is a section of Barkly Street in West Footscray that hosts many local and international grocers and shops.  The area has a long history of multiculturalism and includes many stores owned and operated by Indian, Vietnamese, Chinese Thai and Italian Australians. It’s a pretty hip place to live, home of the women’s circus and owning its own hashtag. #wefo
