Overview
Explore the colorful, art-filled streets of Melbourne’s hip Fitzroy and Collingwood suburbs—with a street artist as your guide. This 2.5-hour walking tour showcases works by celebrated artists as well as emerging talent. Along the way, gain insider knowledge of the city’s underground art world, and finish your tour with a drink and conversation at the Rose Street Artists’ Market.
Highlights
  • Explore Melbourne’s world-renowned street art scene with an insider guide
  • Walk the vibrant, artsy streets and laneways of Fitzroy and Collingwood
  • Check out a mix of urban artworks by both respected artists and new talent
  • Enjoy a drink and meet artists at the Rose Street Artists’ Market
What to Expect
Meet your guide and group in Fitzroy to begin your 2.5-hour walking tour of Fitzroy and Collingwood, two inner-city suburbs of Melbourne always buzzing with creative energy. Follow your bona fide street artist guide on an itinerary that delves into the ever-changing world of street art. Visit officially commissioned murals, many of them by world-renowned artists, and hidden masterpieces tucked into laneways and street nooks. Come across works that are not only visually stunning, but full of wit, humor, and social commentary—and ones that you might otherwise miss without a tuned-in guide to lead the way. The walking tour concludes at the Rose Street Artists’ Market, where you can explore, ask questions, and enjoy a soda, tea, or delicious Aussie coffee.

Definitely worth the money. Amazing Tour with many different types of Street Art to see. When you like Street Art and you don't really know a lot already, this tour is definitely the right thing to do. I've already done other tours in different cities, but this one waa the best

This is a must for any visitors to Melbourne as unless you know where the art is it is easy to miss. Our guide Ben had an authentic knowledge as he was a street artist himself and had real talent and an in depth knowledge. It was very interesting to find out about the hierarchy

Thanks for your review! Having an artist as a guide definitely gifts you with authentic and in-depth knowledge, and it is so great to hear that Ben was able to create this experience for you! I'm sure you'll take away all that you have learnt and it will help you find those artworks that are easily missed in future. Thanks for coming along!! :D

I went on two amazing Street Art tours in Melbourne. One of the CBD and one of Fitzroy. As these tours are led by working artists -- and you can see their work on the tours -- they provide a unique lens to view the vibrant Melbourne street art scene. Street art in Melbourne

Hi Brad, Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review about both of our tours! Having different artists share their perspective on street art and their own experiences as artists certainly makes for unique tours each and every time! It is great to hear about how our guides differed in their approach, but also what you got out of it from the artwork itself right through to the social influences and politics of street art. Thanks again for coming along and for the awesome recommendation!
