Spotswood is an inner-western suburb of Melbourne, 7 km south-west of Melbourne's CBD with a population of about 2,600.
The suburb is bounded generally by the Geelong railway line in the west, the West Gate Freeway in the north, the Yarra River in the east and by the boundaries of the properties below Burleigh Street in the south & served by the Spotswood Railway Station on the Werribee/Williamstown railway lines.
Spotswood was named after J.S. Spottiswoode (shortened Spotswood), one of the first farmers who owned much of the area in the 1840s.
Spotswood was the setting of the eponymous Australian film, Spotswood, made in 1990-1991, starring Anthony Hopkins, Toni Collette, Bruno Lawrence and Russell Crowe. It was also the location for the police headquarters in Mad Max & for the Academy award-winning short film Harvie Krumpet.
