Newport in a nutshell
Located about 11 minutes south of our Footscray physio practice, Newport is a vibrant neighbourhood with a village vibe 10km southwest of Melbourne's CBD. Its proximity to Fishermans Bend along Yarra River provides a sheltered haven for numerous water sports and beachfront leisure pursuits.
A popular part of the City of Hobsons Bay, Newport is home to multicultural residents who enjoy a variety of aquatic, art, cultural, outdoors, and community activities. It’s home to a miniature railway and substation artists market. Houses featuring a range of architectural designs characterize the neighbourhood, while townhouses, terraced houses and apartments feature less extensively.
