Footscray, located just west of the City, is a multicultural community well-known for its thriving food and arts scene and a great public transport in the form of a major train station and several tram/bus routes (only 20 min on public transport to CBD). Our fully-furnished accommodation in Droop Street & Ballarat Road both provide an excellent option for students attending nearby Victoria University.
