“Great art, but a bit scummy looking otherwise.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

The artwork alleyways around the City are great for a look, but do need a good clean...dirty and smelly.

“If you wanted proof that Melbourne is the hippest city this is it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Must visit, easy to combine with an Art Fest - the Melbourne International and the Ian Potter Galleries. Witty, thought provoking, a great backdrop

“Cool street art, must check it out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

This is definitely worth checking out, as it is on Flinders St so easy to get to!! It is a laneway with lots of street art on the walls, it is so cool, loved taking photos in the lane.

“A piece of international character”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

A diversity of quality oriented but affordable eating places. It is also reminiscent of their European or even Asian counterparts. Sitting and eating alfresco is a wonderful inclusion to Melbourne's cultural life.

“A small laneway that makes a big impression”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Hosier lane is just like many of the small blue stone cobbled laneways of Melbourne. Old, small but the artwork makes this a tourist attraction. Here artists respect that of others, its not graffiti, it really is art. Take a look by catching the circle tram.
