Why is it called Hosier Lane? Because back in the 1920s, businesses in this area were clothing manufacturers. Today, it's been approved by Melbourne City council as a place where street artists can showcase their talent and expressions. This laneway is colourful, vibrant and the walls are absolutely full of artwork. What makes this place especially unique is you never know what you'll find when you go there.
As a local each time I've been, I've admired newer, freshly painted displays. A mixture of traditional and abstract street art show artists from a diverse background. The location of this laneway is fantastic, as it's so close to Flinders Street Station, Federation Square & Southbank, just to name a few other attractions within walking distance. This laneway is located between Russel Street & Swanston Street, so why not stop by this laneway and see the unique artwork that's there at the time of your visit! It's completely free to see and a fun way to explore Melbourne's love of art!
