Explore some colourful street art in hidden laneways
A visit to Melbourne would not be complete without seeing some of the street art that abounds. Approved outdoor locations in laneways show off Australia's young talent in what is more than just graffiti. From murals to stencils, a gallery of ever changing art provides for a colourful environment.
Even the bins on the right are painted in Rutledge Lane
Other places to see Melbourne's street art include Caledonian Lane, Union Lane, Finlay Avenue at the rear of 280 Queen Street, 21 Degraves Street, and Centre Place between Collins Street and Flinders Lane.
The city acknowledges this stage for art and approves permits in conjunction with the permission of building owners.
There are also inspiring works of art in the form of sculptures and statues. Wander around Docklands and the New Quay promenade waterfront area and you will see statues of the King, Graham Kennedy, as well as John Farnham and Dame Edna, among others.
