It seems as though all the walking tours of Melbourne stop here and you should too to admire the excellent street art. Significant murals that are always changing.

This lane is a perfect representation of street art. The site is constantly changing with new art. Some lanes managed by the council will be more controlled and tidied and feel more like walking through an art gallery than street art. Hosier lane is organic...More

The lane ways of Melbourne are a big factor of what makes the city so special and this particular one is one of the better ones. Some you go to for coffee and dining, here you come for the graffiti and artwork. So central and...More

Melbourne's most celebrated laneway for street art-Hosier Lane, is a short walk from flinders Street Station. It is a vibrant street full of ever changing dynamic art work, some of them masterpiece in their own right. Well worth a visit!

Its easy to spend an hour browsing the ever changing street art in melbourn’s Most popular Lane way. Stopped at Bar Tini, a modern bodega for a medley of tapas and a refreshing ale. You have to make a judgement call on graffiti vs graphics.

Walking around some tourist hotspots to check out some of the graffiti art in Melbourne. Although interesting and worth a look it was not pleasant with the smell of urine.... Been, seen and some great art but not a very clean area.

Hosier Lane for me had better wall art than Union Lane. Graphics were more vivid and had more concept. Not just some graffiti on the walls. Quite an interesting find at the heart of Melbourne’s Central Business District.

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

It's just an open street so no closing time. I wouldn't recommend going after dark -- you won't be able to see all the art and it does have a few lurkers.
