Overview
Street art is fun to admire but you can get a much richer experience by taking a walking tour in the company of artists and designers who can illuminate the stories behind the work. In the company of a street art-savvy guide, wander through the streets of Sydney and discover its rich culture of graffiti, muralism, and tagging, while learnng about the artists. Meet, and get insight from, local characters and toast the experience with an included craft beer.
What to Expect

Led by street art connoisseur Melinda Vassallo*, this Inner-West tour is a unique opportunity to walk along the backstreets of Newtown and Enmore and discover the interior world of graffiti and wall tagging. Swoop between side alleys and residential streets, unravelling an intricate history of industrial towns and suburbia being fundamental to the flourishing of street art. You will get to learn the names and language of off-brand street artists who became art veterans in their own right. 

You will also wander along King Street and Enmore Road, famous for their unique and quirky shops, restaurants, bars and cafes. 

Ticket price includes a craft beer.

*If Melinda is unavailable on the day, don't worry, an equally respected and knowledgeable guide will lead the tour!

I have lived in Sydney for 13 years and never bothered to explore my own suburb. Super informative and interesting and Craig was so authentic it added a whole second layer of ‘cool’ to the tour. Highly recommend it!
