“Live art”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Melbournes lane ways were dreary and lined with rubbish bins. This is one way to brighten them up and maintain the uniqueness of our capital. We do not need more of them, but this one is great

“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.
