The best of Melbourne street art. Visit often and you will see artists abuzz with spray cans creating vibrant modern street art. Relish the colours and creativity.

I've sought out street art everywhere I've traveled the last two years. It is just something I'm into. I'm by no means an expert, but I follow the genre quite a bit. I didn't anticipate how impressive Melbourne's scene would be, and Hosier Lane is a very good representation of Melbourne's Street Art culture. Is there better art off the... More

This is just a small street and will not take long to visit but it is a great place to see some original street art.

Hosier lane has some really great artwork, I choose to call it art because I think it is. It was a really creative street and I really enjoyed walking through it.

What a quirky, interesting place to visit. I had heard about the lane before we went to Melbourne and I couldn't wait to get there. We got there early and wasn't disappointed - it was full of colour and art in various forms. Even the rubbish bins are painted to match the lane. I spent a lovely hour or so... More

This little lane has amazing graffiti and street art and changes daily! If you're lucky, you can see people creating the work. Won't take more than an hour to walk around the area and explore (5 minutes if you want to do it quickly) but worth checking out!

If you're a lover of graffiti, cartoon, pop art this is Very cool and can change depending on who may be commissioned throughout the year.

Vivid graffiti art by talented people. Walls densely covered, a variety of styles and subjects. Hosier Lane is easy to find. And if you like this, you can work your way right through the CBD grid of bluestone lanes and alleys, all the way up past RMIT in the north, exploring several dozen key graffiti sites. Ignore garbage skips, restaurant... More

If all graffiti was like this London would be a much more attractive place.. The art here is stunning and the people who created this street are fantastic artists, we just need Banksy to come over and show everyone how it's done!!

Do yourself a favour and check out this lane way. The street art in the two main roads is amazing. It changes week to week so there is always something different. Great photo opportunities.
