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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
