Disgusting place. One I wish not to go to again. Amateur art work. I heard great think about Hosier Lane, but wow was I disappointed. Don’t waste your time. It’s full of leftist hate.

Amazing that this street has a rotating art show on its walls that are sanctioned by the city council. It’s right in the heart of the CBD of Melbourne.

This is worth doing for sure. Not the longest walk but punched with colours and selfie opportunities.

Although this is the iconic urban street art viewing location in Melbourne, l think that a walk around the city will uncover equally impressive displays. Make a point of reading some of the small, written additions.

Felt that too much of the ‘art’ had been tagged so was messy in parts. Such a shame. Great to see two artists at work.

Loved all the colourful art works. Super cool and lots of great photo opportunities. Depending on time of day how many people are in the lane but lots of quiet times if you check back.

Very limited to see when we went, a lot of the great art was covered by tags. Not a huge crowd, about a million instagrammers out and about, pity there wasnt a lot to brag about.

Art street lane in Australia. The street is not very long but the arts on the walls are very variety. Sometimes it is difficult to take a photo because many people visits there.

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

It's just an open street so no closing time. I wouldn't recommend going after dark -- you won't be able to see all the art and it does have a few lurkers.
