“Great street art!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

We were a bit dubious whether it would be safe but when we arrived it was absolutely fine. The street is absolutely fantastic with some great street art. Make sure you have your camera!

“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!
