Probably my favorite place. I love all the colors and I love that I can go back a few days later and see new art because the walls are always changing. Definitely worth a visit.

This little lane is absolutely covered in gaudy murals! When we were there, a wedding party was having photos taken there, bride and groom against a giant lizard! There's also a good Spanish restaurant here - Movida.

Loved the paintings. It amazing the talent in abundance in Melbourne to create some amazing modern art. The smell of fresh paint made it a new experience

This was a great backdrop for a model shoot that I photographed while visiting friends in Melbourne! Fun to meander and appreciate the art.

If you're not into young, hip, modern, contemporary art then don't expect too much. The cool thing about these alley ways is that no two days will ever be the same as the artists come and re-paint over there old artworks every evening. Recommend going during the day as at night it can be a little quiet!

Call it graffiti, call it street art, it doesn't matter. If you want to see all manner of art and a canvas that constantly changes, head to Hosier lane. Amazing to see the skill of the artists and the variety of their work. I quite often take a detour down here on my way home just to see what new... More

There is one little laneway in Melbourne that is a must to visit. Tucked away between Flinders Lane and Flinders Street is Hosiers Lane. Set amongst the famous Spanish tapas bars of Frank Camora, sits a never-ending montage of classy graffiti art. It constantly changes and the images cover fantasy, politics, music and social commentary. Well worth a visit.

This little lane joining Flinder's Street with Flinder's Lane was a great find. We weren't alone though as about 40 people posed for pictures or were taking selfies. The lane has it's own cafe in a hole in the wall and it's worth getting a cuppa there while you take in the blast of colors around you
