Hosier Lane

Hosier Lane is the street art capital of Australia. Stretching the entire lane way from one end at Flinders Street to the other end at Flinders Lane, the walls on either side has recently been repainted in black for a collection of street artists to repaint and display their new street arts. This was done as part of the NGV’s Melbourne Now exhibition.

Both Hosier Lane and Rutledge Lane – a U-shaped arterial lane running through the middle of Hosier Lane are the most popular lanes in Melbourne. The main Hosier Lane is famously photographed by tourists. This lane is also popular with local newly weds. The place is iconic and very Melbournian. The lanes are grungy and smell of wee stained especially along Rutledge Lane. Cover the nose or stop breathing for 1 – 2 minutes. It is worth the stroll to admire the arts.P1140562P1140569P1140579P1140592P1140591
