The City of Maribyrnong is a small, densely populated area, located in the inner west of Melbourne on the edge of the Maribyrnong River. The City has the second most ethnically diverse population in Victoria, with 40% of residents born outside Australia. Residents come from more than 135 different countries and speak over 80 languages.

Changes in land use from industrial to mixed use residential/ business have resulted from the restructuring of local manufacturing industries and the relocation of the Commonwealth defence industries from the area. Features include the tertiary education, health services and retail precincts of Victoria University, Footscray Hospital and Highpoint Shopping Centre. The city also features niche food and retail village precincts. The largest industry employers are retail, personal services, health and education.
