Overview
Learn all about the stories behind the artists and explore the bustling urban hub of Fitzroy and Collingwood, Melbourne's most colourful suburbs on a guided street art tour. The tour is run entirely by street artists, offering an authentic view into this underground art scene.
Highlights
  • Explore Melbourne’s world-renowned street art scene with an insider guide
  • Walk the vibrant, artsy streets and laneways of Fitzroy and Collingwood
  • Check out a mix of urban artworks by both respected artists and new talent
  • Enjoy a drink and meet artists at the Rose Street Artists’ Market
What to Expect
Meet your guide and group in Fitzroy to begin your 2.5-hour walking tour of Fitzroy and Collingwood, two inner-city suburbs of Melbourne always buzzing with creative energy. Follow your bona fide street artist guide on an itinerary that delves into the ever-changing world of street art. Visit officially commissioned murals, many of them by world-renowned artists, and hidden masterpieces tucked into laneways and street nooks. Come across works that are not only visually stunning, but full of wit, humor, and social commentary—and ones that you might otherwise miss without a tuned-in guide to lead the way. The walking tour concludes at the Rose Street Artists’ Market, where you can explore, ask questions, and enjoy a soda, tea, or delicious Aussie coffee.
