Shopping precinct activations

On this page:

Local shopping precincts are the heart of our community. It is important that they thrive and support local business, as well as meeting the needs of the community.

The major shopping precincts participating in these projects are:

  • Union Road, Ascot Vale
  • Racecourse Road, Flemington
  • Keilor Road, Niddrie
  • Puckle Street, Moonee Ponds Business Precinct 
  • Essendon Junction, North Essendon
  • Strathmore

Love Our Local

The Love Our Local campaign aims to raise awareness about the importance of shopping locally and supporting local business within our economy. The campaign will also celebrate and profile our primary activity centres within Moonee Valley.

Local Stories street exhibitions

The Union Road and Strathmore precincts hosted a street exhibition, celebrating people and stories through the lives of their locals. The Local Stories street exhibition showcased moving and often funny stories in public spaces and shop windows.

Moonee Valley Signals Project

The Signals project has transformed over 30 VicRoads signal boxes into works of art.

Professional artists and local students have contributed vibrant works in a variety of styles, providing a colourful and engaging experience for all who see these unique art pieces.

Check out the Moonee Art webpage for an interactive map of the art boxes throughout Moonee Valley.
