Footscray’s origins lies in a small settlement named Saltwater, built on a crossing of the river. New arrivals to the area saw the open grasslands as ideal for grazing animals and in 1836, 40,000 sheep were imported from Tasmania. Within five years this had grown to 100,000 sheep. By the 1850s, a diverse range of industries and agriculture was found along the banks of the river, from meat industries to market gardens.
