Footscray has just been named the 13th coolest suburb in the world, join us on this experience to find out why. We begin by taking a local train from the city 10 minutes to the vibrant suburb of Footscray. This neighbourhood is a melting pot of cultures and cuisines and we'll take our taste buds on a journey as we sample authentic Ethiopian food, delicious Vietnamese bahn mi and traditional Sicilian cannoli. All of the places we go are voted as the best in Melbourne by the locals and not only that, you will get to meet people who work there and hear their stories. You will also learn about the history and demographic of this neighbourhood and take in some amazing street art and views of the city. On the days that the Footscray Market is open we will also wander through the stalls taking in the sights and sounds of local life. We finish the experience on the banks of the Yarra River and visit the Community Arts Centre. After which we can help you get back to the city or give you lots of recommendations of things to do, see and eat for the rest of your stay in the city. One thing is for sure, you will definitely be leaving this experience satisfied, both with the cuisines on offer and with the understanding of diversity and local life in Melbourne. Come see why they say 'West is Best'.
