“graffiti walls”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

worth to visit since it is famous from the city. I was a bit disappointed because it is really small lane less than 70 meters maybe? but those kind of graffiti are scattered. it is not only in hosier lane but other streets are also have some awesome paintings. According to local guide, it should be permitted by the local authorities and the owner of the building, which makes sens. almost every weekends, young painters are painting new pictures.. I expected the one I heard from Korean TV show, but it was different painting unfortunately...

“Paint the town whatever colour you like”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Love it or loathe it? see it and then make up your mind. We love the vibrancy, the rebelliousness, the creativity, the added excitement and the spirit that captures the soul with a wander and wonder through quaint laneways and and every changing streetscape.

“Street art”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Melbourne's premier street for officially sanctioned street art or graffiti. I've seen many bridal parties using the graffiti backdrop for their bridal shoot, whatever reason/s only known to them

“Take the camera.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

This is probably the most famous of Melbourne's art gallery/laneways. You can't miss it as it's always full of people taking photos, locals and tourists alike. When people ask me what's the main difference between Sydney and Melbourne I always say that Sydney has lanes full of skips, bins and parking; Melbourne,s laneways have coffee shops and street art. It makes me wonder where the hell we put our bins etc.

“Street art”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

Love the street art there.
Took lots of pictures, spending 15mins to admire the creativity of many.
I understand the painting & art work get replaced pretty fast.
