About Us

Unlike other postcodes, Altona is an Oasis beyond the harsh industrial elements of the city. A community disconnected from the hustle and bustle. Where you’re welcomed with open arms and it just feels right. It feels like home.

It’s where all types of people and business collide. Where time stops for a moment and you feel a sense of relief. You’re somewhere special. There’s space to park your car. Where friendly faces greet you. Where you’re free to be you. Free to walk. To explore. To take in the moment. To look. To be.

There’s something special about Altona. The more you get to know this wide open community with wide open arms, the more special it feels. There’s so much to discover. So many characters you’ll meet. So many corners to turn and paths to discover.

There’s a lot that makes Altona, Altona. And it’s the culmination of the individuals, the businesses and the spaces that make it special. When the locals start talking about what makes it special to them, it’s contagious. It opens doors to reimagine Altona. To discover (or re-discover) 3018 and all it has to offer.

This is Altona.
