“A wonderful way to turn a drab alley into a outdoor gallery”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Melbourne's graffiti lanes are a brilliant idea. It has transformed drab ugly alley ways and lanes into gorgeous, modern, colorful street galleries. It is fun just walking through these lanes and checking out the gorgeous artwork...and of course taking photos. A great concept!

“Ever-changing street-art”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

The ever-changing nature of the art on the walls of Hosier Lane means that it will be different every time you walk through. The stencil-work and graffiti art makes for a lot of variety on the walls. I find it a different, fun route when walking between Flinders Street and Flinders Lane if you're heading up towards Collins Street.

“Great street art!”
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?”
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.
