City Unscripted

Select Option


Discover Melbourne’s creative side as you explore the city’s laneways and immerse yourself in its constantly evolving street art culture. From paste ups to tags, murals to stencils, you’ll find every kind of street art possible hidden down unassuming alleyways, tiny lanes and arcades so jam packed with bars and eateries you’ll wonder how there’s enough space! With a like-minded local, immerse yourself in the art and culture of The Lanes, stop to enjoy a coffee or a beer in one of trendiest, hole-in-the-wall bars in the city and maybe even stumble across an artist at work! Discover the most famous arcades which are known to be hubs of artistic expression, as well as ducking down some back streets where the work of up and coming street art is hidden, for local eyes only!

About This Deal

Discover some of the most famous street art in the city down laneways like Centre Place, a tiny lane with a huge character; here you’ll find some of the trendiest foodie haunts in the city like a hole-in-the-wall dumping eatery, an standing espresso joint and a tropical juice bar as well as more street art than you would have thought possible in such a small space! Stop by Hosier Lane, the beating heart of Melbourne’s street art scene and where you’ll find probably the most diverse range of creative expression, and one of the best coffee shops in the city which also provides support for homeless people in the area. Also not to miss is Meyer’s Place, a miniature version of the best of the city’s bar culture; you’ll find tiny watering holes which are squeezed into this narrow lane izakaya style! Reminiscent of the backstreets of Tokyo, with a unique Aussie twist of course, you’ll find small bars which double as arts and cultural venues, hosting arthouse film screenings, gallery exhibitions and live music, all plastered by incredible street art.The Lanes are microcosms of the city’s art and cultural scene, tiny spaces where you’d never imagine so much creativity and artistic expression could be found! Your local will show you the most famous lanes but also take you off the beaten path to streets most tourists don’t know about, and are where some of the best street art in the city is hidden. Discover Melbourne’s street art in both the famous and backstreet lanes, soaking up the city’s artistic culture, learning about its heritage through art, and stopping to refuel with delicious eats and drinks in some of the coolest spots in town.
