Hosier Lane, Melbourne

(1,400 reviews on the web)
Landmark
Mosey down Hosier Lane to see some of Australia's finest street art. Graffiti falls short as a term for describing most of the graphics adorning the building walls. The artists intend for their elaborate works to provoke thought the same way art in more traditional media does. Like many formal art galleries and museums, the works along the street constantly change as artists create new pieces. After viewing the street gallery, pop into one of the nearby upscale cocktail lounges for a refreshment.

  • We did a self street tour just absorbing all the local art. I got some awesome pictures & really enjoyed this. I admire when people have amazing talent and I know that the street art can always change...  more »
  • An example to follow for the development of what is often art but more often vandalism. Among the different corners of Melbourne dedicated to graffiti, Hosier Lane is certainly the richest.

  • Fabulous laneway, excellent artworks. Vibrant colour and good detail, just walk through and take it all in. I don't know if they call this work "graffiti " or not but certainly is professional.  more »

  • Great place to start off your trek through the graffiti lanes of Melbourne. The art form, while temporary, will always instill emotion. 100% free and would check it out any time of the day. There are always people roaming around in the area checking out the art!
  • Cool lane in the midst of the city. Cool graffitis all over. Tourists must visit the place.
  • Hosier Lane and the many others in and around Melbourne are my must visits when in town - the graffiti changes most days and sometimes you see great street art slowly getting covered by lesser quality and I used to wonder why they let that happen. But now I get that's the nature of this art form - its like life; it's temporary. So, now I enjoy what's there - when I am there.
  • Amazing place to visit in Melbourne. Definitely a must see if you want to be impressed by street art!
  • One of the must see attractions in Melbourne. If you like arts and culture, Hosier lane is your place to start with.
