The Best Street Art In Melbourne

Melbourne is prolific when it comes to art, and sometimes the best pieces can be found on the street. We’ve done the hunting and put together a list of the best places to find street art in Melbourne. Including where to find the city’s only Banksy. Enjoy!

Hosier Lane

Off Flinders Lane, City

Hosier Lane is the hottest lane in the entire city – it’s super popular with tourists. Its entire walls are covered in street art, mostly stencils from local artists. It’s a shining example of Melbourne’s laneway scene. The best piece is by local artist Adnate – a portrait of an Aboriginal boy that overlooks the entire lane.

AC/DC Lane

Flinders Lane, City

Named after the legendary Australian rock band, AC/DC Lane is home to some incredible street art. The highlight is a towering piece of a young man carrying an uprooted tree. There’s also several tributes to Malcolm Young, the rhythm guitarist of AC/DC who passed in 2017.

Croft Alley

Little Bourke St, City

Chinatown is no stranger to laneways, but this one is a little bit different. Croft Alley winds off Little Bourke St and it’s walls are covered in art. For another surprise, keep wandering through the alley and you’ll reach The Croft Institute, a science themed hidden bar.

Drewery Lane

Off Lonsdale St, City

Drewery Lane is a small lane, but filled with a few secrets. The biggest piece of art you’ll see is from Lushux, and it’s a giant mural of Kim Kardashian and model Emily Ratajkowski.

Duckboard Place

Off Flinder's Lane

Connected to AC/DC Lane is Duckboard Place, another great laneway to view some street art. There are some giant wall pieces, but the most notable piece is much smaller. This is the only place to view Melbourne’s only remaining piece by infamous street artist Banksy. You can find them in the far South Eastern corner – look for two parachuting rats!

Matt Adnate Mural


Matt Adnate is by far one of Melbourne’s most skilled street artists; his works pop up all around the city and usually feature Indigenous Australians. But his most impressive piece takes up the entire side of a housing commission flat. Located in Collingwood, this piece is as impressive as it is massive.
