Footscray has extensive railway yards and a huge and very popular fruit market (” the Melbourne Wholesale Fruit and Vegetable Market”). Footscray (and neighboring Maribyrnong) has often been a staging area for refugees into Melbourne. It also has a very large multicultural student population for the Victoria University.
While many factories and warehouses are still to be found in and around the suburb of Footscray, many former industrial sites are being transformed into modern housing estates. Perhaps the largest of these is the former Footscray Ammunition Factory in a prime elevated position overlooking the banks of the Maribyrnong River with views across to Flemington Racecourse and Melbourne city centre.
