Industrial and commercial precincts


Identified by the state government as one of Victoria’s four key industrial areas, the Western Industrial Precinct in the west of Hobsons Bay is recognised as a hub for freight, logistics and manufacturing investment.


The precinct, which extends across Altona, Brooklyn and Laverton, is characterised by strategically located, accessible and competitively priced industrial land.


Hobsons Bay is also home to a number of busy commercial activity centres, from local shopping precincts to premier tourist destinations and major shopping centres, local residents benefit from a thriving retail sector. Opportunities exist around the increasing demand for commercial office space within our centres in proximity to existing and improving transport infrastructure.
