Melbourne is synonymous with street art.
The dedicated alleyways populated with murals, stickers, posters, is perhaps what puts the cool factor in the city. Ask anyone who visited Melbourne, high chance that they never went to the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria or St. Kilda Pier, but it is almost impossible that they never went to Hosier Lane.
Drawing massive attention from tourists across the globe, the city government has created public spaces and allocated specific laneways for street artists. The most popular of all is Hosier Lane at Melbourne CBD, where you can see wall to wall murals and making it one of the city most crowded laneway.
Hosier Lane is actually my least favorite, for it is almost impossible to see the original work, as layers of layers of vandalism has destroyed what can I only presume as once really good creative space.
Named after the famous Australian rock band, the murals at AC/DC lane is actually much cleaner and easier to visualize as compared to Hosier Lane. With the popular music venue Cherry Bar in the vicinity, the murals at AC/DC Lane is mostly an ode to musicians.
These three laneways are the easiest to find since they are mainly within the vicinity of Flinders Street and Flinders Lane, but if you are keen to see more, walk a bit further to Rankins Lane and Caledonian Lane.
