It's truly an ever changing masterpiece, and every time you go it will be different. It's definitely worth a look! If you go closer to dusk, you can sometimes catch artists working on their pieces. I visited the lane three times over a week visit, since it's located in a pretty central location and on the way to a lot... More

What more can you say about a commissioned laneway for street art and graffiti, you need to look more closely for the intricacies. It's an evolving lane, and needs to be visited on a regular basis just to take stock of the changes, and you may even to be able to catch a glimpse of an actual artist at work.... More

I love graff / street art whatever you want to call it, and the Melbourne scenes is insane with Hosier Lane being the center piece. Love it or hate it, it is worth the look. And if you want to see more google Melbourne Graff and there is a great google map someone was nice enough to put together of... More

Self expression at its finest..in all directions! Every nook and cranny is filled with graffiti. One must keep his eye out for little drawings that are as awesome as the big ones. Better to go in the morning,around ten-ish when it's not crowded and when there's light.

Stroll down (or up!) Hosier Lane and see street art at its finest. One can often see the artists at work, putting the finishing touches to their creations. There are some amazing pieces of art on show, often witty and always colourful. Don't miss it.

Melbourne has some awesome art and Hosier Lane is the place to go to see the best street/graffiti art. Melbourne council allows certain lanes for graffiti artists to do their thing and it is quite an experience seeing it in one place! The lane is usually busy with tourists looking and taking photos. A must see when visiting Melbourne!
