  Off Flinders Lane

Hosier Lane

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.

  Flinders Lane, City

ACDC 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.

  Little Bourke St, City

Croft Alley

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.

  Off Lonsdale St, City

Snider’s Lane

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.

  Off Flinders Lane

Duckboard Place

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!
