My friend Artur walked me through a number of Melbourne’s lanes in the CBD in the past weeks.
Those lanes, often still surrounded by old, low brick buildings, tell about Melbourne’s past, but they are also the spots of its most vibrant life. Small back-alley bars, roof tops, cafés, etc…
I’m glad they haven’t (yet) been all replaced with shiny skyscrapers!
But also in the rest of Melbourne I stopped the bike every now and then to take a quick snapshot of a random artwork that I saw. They are all across town.
You could do a whole guide with these, through Melbourne. Actually, they do, at Melbournestreettours, first, and only, street art tours in Australia run by street artists.
