Union Lane

Melbourne has long held the reputation of having the world’s most vibrant street art, and nowhere is his exemplified more than on Union Lane.

Undoubtedly home to some of Melbourne’s best street art, the lane continues to attract visitors from all over the world.

Union Lane, Street Art Graffiti Near Bourke Street, Melbourne VIC

Just about every part of the wall is covered in graffiti, making for a visually compelling adventure. The total area of the graffiti-covered wall stretches out for about 550 square metres, so there is every reason to stroll on the lane and study the art located here.

The beauty about this form of art is that it forces the visitor to ask themselves questions about what message the art is trying to convey. It is therefore no surprise that most of the graffiti on Union Lane has a political twist to it. For the most part, street art stirs up controversy, but in a unique way.

A number of bars and cafes also dot the lane where you can grab a quick snack, coffee or sit down meal with friends.

You can find Union Lane off Bourke Street Mall and it can be reached easily by walking from Flinders Street Station or by taking a number 1, 5, 6, 8, 16, 64, 67, 72, 86 or 96 tram.
