Melbourne, Australia is a city famous for its alfresco dining and couture fashion sense. But twisted within its laneways there lies a street art culture that speaks its own language. It may take a whole afternoon of wandering hidden paths and passing putrid dumpsters to get a great snapshot, but it’s well worth it. While these creatures and characters may stare at you with empty eyes, there is no doubting they have many stories to tell. They hold a voice for the subculture of Melbourne that is immersed in this mainstream haven. So don’t be afraid to roam the narrow alleyways, there may be a masterpiece waiting at the end. You can pick up a street art map at the visitor center in Federation Square.
