This is a unique experience - these by-lanes look very ordinary but they have a a colorful artistic Graffiti on the walls. This will be a detour from regular path, but it will be worth it. Best done walking as vehicles are not allowed in most of these lanes. If you go there on a weekend afternoon, you may get... More

This is one of the dedicated lane for graffiti arts in Melbourne. The Graffiti changes from time to time. The area to cover is small and nearby to the Federation Square. Few good graffiti but most are not of my personal art tastes. *More into arts in National Gallery of Victoria. Nice little detour for those who likes street arts.

Had a wonder up and through Hosier lane very colourful and fine if your passing, but would not go out of my way to see it, only a few very good images but mostly just coloured graffiti and some clever observations.

Constantly changing street art of Hosier Lane - it's always worth poking your head down this lane way to see what's changed or what the local artists are currently working on. A real icon of Melbourne city that locals and visitors to Melbourne shouldn't miss.

Went there after we bought a painting from it near the beach, was not disapointed ! 2 Streets are fully cover of draw/graffiti, some are pure art, some less, but all together, it gives a beautiful ensemble, with all kind of draw. A must see !

Go - take photos....and go again a few months later. Intriguing what is here. Worth a good half hour of browsing. Great in its uniqueness and spontaneity. Unfettered by any form of astroturfing (as yet). Be careful, there was some wet paint on a window ledge that someone sat on when I was there...

this lane is a constantly changing gallery of street art. Some images seem to stay longer than others, but there's something neat about knowing that what you're seeing won't be there forever. If you want a nice dinner, make sure you visit Movida while you're here.
