Street art has been growing in popularity over the past few decades to the point that cities now have sections that are dedicated to the art form. In this regard, Melbourne is one of the best places you can visit if you’re in the mood to appreciate street art – here’s a closer look.

Strachan Lane

If you’re staying at a centrally-located serviced apartment in Melbourne – for instance, the Oaks Melbourne on William Suites – Strachan Lane is a great place to get started with your street art tour. This lane is relatively small but has some of the most epic murals you’ll find in the city.

AC/DC Lane

As the name would imply, this is a street that’s dedicated to one of the most iconic rock bands in the world. Found right in the heart of Melbourne CBD, there are countless tributes to the band painted on almost every single wall here!

Hosier Lane

Hosier Lane is included in plenty of travel guides as one of the best places to visit in Melbourne – and the great street art on display is certainly part of the reason for it. Here you’ll find classic murals alongside more recent one, a sign of the area’s constant evolution.

Presgrave Place

Presgrave Place showcases a different sort of street art. instead of grand murals, you’ll find all kinds of quaint decorations and sculptures that have all been created with recycled materials here.
