Footscray, the suburb next door to mine, has residents from some 135 countries and while 10 years ago the population was mainly from Vietnam, China, India, U.K. and Italy, today, there’s been a major increase in residents from Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Myanmar (as well as refugees from other countries).


Over 80 languages are spoken which no doubt has some influence on the suburb’s wide variety of street art.

I decided to explore one lane opposite the Footscray Market late this afternoon after some shopping and liked what I saw.


I’m keen to explore some more another day.
