“Street art or Graffiti you decide?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Right in the heart of the city, Hosier lane is a must see with your camera. It may be debatable whether Graffiti spoils the look of the city or is an art form, but this lane surely is very interesting and gives a different feel to it.

“Maybe not for a night visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Unless you're with a group of friends. The lane is a bit dark & quiet at night. Great artworks. One of the world's top graffiti exhibition. One of the few lanes the government allows for graffiti to be drawn.

“Street art in a safe place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Our guide brought us here on a 3 hour walk through the center of Melbourne. Impressed by the work and amount of murals we took a lot of pictures. A fresh mural was being painted while we walked by, interesting to see as well!

“Always evolving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Highly recommend taking a stroll down Hosier Lane. If you're lucky, you'll see some street artists at work. Its always changing and evolving. The artists have amazing skill and the grafitti is beautiful and emotive.
