Bright, colourful, and if you are lucky you will see an artist in action. When walking up towards Flinders Lane, look up! Right hand side... take note of what you can see in the eyes??!!

Very interesting to wander up and down this lane and admire all the graffiti. I even found Wally! Some of the art work is amazing, other stuff is rubbish, but it is all very colourful! Now if we can just find somewhere else to keep the dumpsters from the nearby restaurants, and put in a few pleasant smelling potplants, the... More

Wow, we stayed next door basically, so we were fortunate to see it daily, and it changed daily, what talented people Melboune have, . I'm pretty sure there is a youth group involved so a great cause is behind it all, they should charge for entry, cause it is an art gallery

Hosier Lane is not as interesting as it was previously. Quality of the art has deteriorated. Visitors were disappointed.

There are numerous lanes in Melbourne and this one along with others are given over to street art, some of which is very interesting and cleverly done.

Melbourne has many hidden little gems and this is certainly one of them, if you are interested in art/ local culture. Many places here and near by to enjoy excellent coffee or a meal.

Good to have a walk through! You also go through here on the free walking tour were you get told a little more about some of the art work. Worth a visit and is an iconic thing to see in Melbourne.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
