Hosier lane is a much underrated sight in Melbourne and a must see for Arts enthusiasts, many of the pieces reaching high above. My favourite piece is the Joker and something that many people would love to see if they simply knew it was there. Have a stroll through each alleyway and be amazed at the talent some people have!!!

I finally discovered Hosier Lane and was shocked to see how close it was to Flinders Street Station. Photography heaven. I went around 7 pm...no one was there..spent 20 minutes. ..taken more than 50 photos. ...earlier visited such a street in Rio de Janeiro. ...

Hozier Lane is the Mecca of Australian graffiti and street art. An international tourist attraction, lots of cameras and teenagers posing with selfie sticks hooked up to moblle phones . Amazing art and interesting calligraphy, some items last an hour before being painted over, others last over a year!

Places like Hosier lane are rare on this planet. Where ever you look high or low the artwork is astounding and captivating. Genuine back alley funky shops and a cafe along the way. Stop a while and be prepared to be amazed

i liked it but my wife was spooked by it. She saw it as where Batmans parents died, whilst I saw it as extreme art. The art work was bold, some dark, some expressive, some colourful. Worth more than one visit. The tiny amount yarn bombing was an interesting extra

Hoiser Lane is a lively, colourful place where artists around Melbourne are able to express themselves and share their artwork. Although Hoiser Lane is merely a narrow lane way, it is a most exciting place that you can continue to visit and will be amused again and again as the artwork changes. Basically artists are able to paint on any... More

I finally discovered Hosier Lane and was shocked to see how close it was to Flinders Street Station. Photography heaven. Although I may not be into Art, I was gobsmacked by the detail in the work. This lane is featured in a Street Art book published by my cousin so I was keen to follow it up with a visit.

As a massive fan of street art I love coming to see how it is changing at Hosier and the surrounding lanes. Always good to see new talent. Shame about the tagging as it spoils some beautiful pieces but a must see for any visitor to Melbourne

We visit Hosier Lane regularly as my partner enjoys photography and loves all the bright and creative paint work. Never the same, which is a shame sometimes.
