St. Margaret’s school is located in the suburb of Maribyrnong in the North West of Melbourne, 8.5kms from the Melbourne GPO.
The school is situated at 67 The Esplanade, just a stones throw from the Maribyrnong River which has been of significance to the history of the area. Originally home to the Woiwurung people many thousands of years ago, the river was the area around which the Marin Bulluk people built their lifestyle. This group of people concentrated their lives around a small area very much like the people of Maribyrnong today. The area is still seen as a small community because of the physical boundaries enclosing it. The River, Highpoint City and the Defence buildings have formed a fencing effect for many years.
