What You Will Learn

  • Learn about the amazing food history of Footscray
  • Explore food stores, markets, bakeries for tastings and samples
  • Experience the amazing mix of European, Asian and African cultures


Footscray has long been Melbourne’s cultural meeting place with Italian, Greek, Irish, Indian and Vietnamese people living alongside recently arrived migrants from Ethiopia. This amazing mix of cultures has created a unique place for food lovers to explore.

This tour will take in many of these cuisines as we work our way through the butchers, fishmongers and delis of the Footscray Market. We then move beyond the market to explore streets filled with Indian food stores, Italian bakeries and Asian grocers.

Tastings start with a hot jam doughnut from the famous Olympic doughnut van. We will also have an opportunity to try Indian snacks, ricotta filled cannoli, sugarcane juice and traditional African bread. The tour also explores the Little Saigon Shopping area to see traditional Vietnamese food and ingredients.

We then explore the African precinct with its cafes and bakeries and food stores. Finally we enjoy a beautiful shared meal of Injera bread and fragrant Ethiopian dishes at Konjo restaurant.

Our Footscray private walking tour is the way to really enjoy this unique food-lovers neighbourhood.
