      Street art in the city

      Hosier Lane Street Art

      Hosier Lane

      Off Flinders Lane, City

      Hosier Lane is the busiest lane in the entire city, and one of Melbourne’s most popular tourist attractions. 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.

      ACDC 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, Melbourne, Australia (3)

      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 its walls are covered in street art. For another surprise, keep wandering through the alley and you’ll reach The Croft Institute, one of Melbourne’s many secret bars.

      Drewery Lane, Melbourne, Australia (5)

      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!
