Melbourne's laneways are an adventure in themselves: unofficial art galleries that capture the vibrancy and dynamism of a truly artistic city. Melbourne's character has been transformed by the activity of street artists since the 1990s, whose creativity and innovation in their practice has led to Melbourne being named one of the street art capitals of the world.Put Urban Scrawl Tours into our Melbourne road trip planning website to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Melbourne.
Urban Scrawl Art Tours invite you to look at the City of Melbourne through different eyes. Behind the grid of the CBD is a world of hidden treasures: subway galleries, paint explosions, and world-famous stencils stashed behind bins. Characters dance across walls and leap over buildings, calling you to follow them and discover more!
Urban Scrawl tours are led by art historians whose passion for Melbourne's street art scene is infectious. The stories we tell as we show off our city are both well-informed and personal: a combination of investigation into street art as a cultural phenomenon and a true love of Melbourne and its street art.
Urban Scrawl also offers a fantastic education program for secondary schools. Please contact us for more info!
