Melbourne is known as a city that appreciates and promotes the arts. Public art is a part of the Melbourne psyche and displays of street art (aka graffiti), sculpture and performance art can be seen across the city, day and night. Expression through art is accepted as a part of everyday life in the city and as such creativity can be seen at every turn, generating a vibrant and energetic culture.
Adding to this expression of existence through art is the Docklands Public Art Walk. Consisting of 36 pieces spread throughout the precinct this is art that can be enjoyed as a purposeful, self-guided tour or as an inspiring enhancement to a journey through the area.
If you fancy having your photo taken with one of Australia's stars of stage and screen, make sure that you stop at Waterfront City Plaza, where bronze statues of Graham Kennedy, John Farnham, Dame Nellie Melba, Dame Edna and Kylie Minogue pose politely day and night.
