    Assalamu alaikum,

    I live in Meadow Heights and there are heaps of Muslims here. Mostly Turkish. Almost all the shops here are halal. Roxburgh Park also has an increasing Muslim population.

    Then there are the areas of Coburg, Brunswick, Northcote, Preston, Fawkner, Glenroy, Broadmeadows, Newport, Dandenong... hmmm, where else?? There are probably heaps of others, but probably best for people who live in those areas to tell you.

    Insha Allah that helps.

    Wa alaikum salam,
    Rachel

    Newport, Coubrg and Brunswick are full of lebanese
    Broadmeadows are full of Turkish poeple
    North Melbourne, Felemington and Carlton are mixed between Aretrian and Somalian
    Heildlburg (not sure from spelling) is mixed between egyptian and somalian.
    Dandenong are full of Albanian and some mix arab.

    but of course you will find other nationalities in these areas.

    I'm guessing that there are quite a few Muslims in Thomastown too coz there's a mosque and a halal butcher, and I see lots of hijabis when I'm out shopping in Thomastown, Lalor and Epping. I'd say mostly Northern Suburbs like sis Rachel said.

    I think the sisters and brother have pretty much summed it up in the above posts Tina, but one more thing I will add, is Doncaster/East Doncaster, not many halal shops there, except for a Nandos and indian restaurants, but there is a masjid which is predominantly paki populated, but there is a mix of arabs in doncaster like palestinian, egyptian, syrian and lebanese, oh and I know of one South African family living there.

    Subhanallah.

    Doncaster has really changed since I grew up there. When I first reverted to Islam I thought I was the only Muslim in the area. But now when I visit my parents it feels so different there especially out shopping.

    Although, now I must admit I also live in the Northern suburbs, in Roxburgh Park. There is definitely alot more of an established Islamic community over this side of town. Inshallah, Doncaster's community will also grow.

    Melbourne in general is fairly scattered compared to say Sydney for example, which is ghetto based. Basically as mentioned you will find Arabs and Turks who dominate the northern suburbs. The eastern and south eastern suburbs you will find mainly Egyptians (North Africans ), some Arabs, South Africans and those from the Sub-Continent. The eastern suburbs are upper class areas...the west, I don't goto often alhamdulilah so I couldn't really say much about that.
