Why Ascot Vale?

A suburb with a rich history, Ascot Vale has been home to many people over the years. Today it is an inner suburb of Melbourne that offers plenty for those who live there and is a very multicultural suburb with a population of just under 15,000.

Ascot Vale was established by British settlers back in the 1830s on 18 acres (7 hectares) just next door to what is now known as Flemington Racecourse – Victoria’s oldest continuing horse-race track! This makes Ascot Vale part of our great Australian culture that still thrives today: thoroughbred racing!

The main area in which people dwell in Ascot Vale surrounds Maribyrnong Road and Moonee Ponds Creek where they can enjoy cafes on quiet side streets or eat at some offbeat diners if they venture out further into town.

Ascot Vale is located 6 km northwest of central Melbourne and sits just by the banks of one of its tributaries, the Maribyrnong River. It’s bordered along most sides by Flemington, Moonee Ponds and Maribyrnong as well as natural features such as rivers, creeks and parkland.
