There is some mediocre street art on the walls. Nothing of any significance. The area is not that safe and not recommended for toursits.

I'm not entirely sure what makes Falls St. an attraction. Yes, it has that creepy feeling of olden days but I'm not sure as to its allure. Other than that it is run-down street with questionable attractions. The murals are the only unique thing I would consider worth stopping by and spending more time on - ideally with some local...

A must-do place to go - I just did it on foot and minded my own business. Place felt totally safe on foot, but the raw wounds are still there.

I visited here last week and thoroughly enjoyed looking at the murals as I walked along. As a lone female I felt safe and no one pays much attention when you stop to take photos,the locals I did encounter were friendly and chatty especially in one of local cafes i went in to have a cuppa and shelter from the...

Did this trip a number of years ago when it was just a local guy in a taxi. It was a trip my mother wanted to make so we booked a day flight from Newcastle one Sunday and asked a taxi driver to take us. It was a bitter sweet tour.

I recently took two young friends visiting from Germany for a car trip along the Falls and they were not impressed at all.

We didn't get to see much of the road. It was part of a Black Taxi Tour. Worth seeing though. Lot of history there.
