Tours and Tickets

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.

Not much to it.

There is a small amount of street art at the entrance to this lane way but that’s about it. There is also a plaque the one of the icons of Australian music.

This lady has her own street
Jul. 2020
Chrissy Amphlett was lead singer for the Divynls, a pioneering rock and roll band. Like most performing artists, she had her ups and downs. Female rock n' rollers were not so common then, she made a real ccontribution to raising the status of women in popular music. This lane is in Little Bourke St, down from Spring St, near Chinatown. It's not a great thoroughfare, but few singers have a street named after them.

Memorial lane for lady who sang the blues
Mar. 2020
Amphlett Lane is not much to look at; it's mainly used for hauling trash. But it's nice for the city to name a roadwwy after a chanteuse who marched to the beat of a different drummer.. Chrissy Amphlett died from cancer at the age 53 in New York. The petition to name a land after Chrissy Amphlett raised 7,000 signatures. The lane is in Little Bourke St (Chinatown) just down from Spring St. Have a look if your passing by.

Tribute to a departed diva
Jul. 2019 • Solo
Chrissy Amplett was a singer who headed the Divinyls, a pioneering rock group. Amphlett Lane is not much to see -- it's mainly used to haul garbage from the nearby restaurants. But it's a a nice thing for the City to name a roadway after a lady who sang the blues. and died early. There is a plaque there with the details of Chrissy's life. The lane is in Little Bourke Street, just down from Spring St

Not an attraction

It’s a lane way with bins, road surface and a painting of dogs. The paintings are good but it’s not worth going out of your way for. Definitely not an attraction.

Small but lovely
Jan. 2019
A short walk from Parliament Train Station is the street art and Lane honouring female rock pioneer Chrissy Amphlett who died tragically in her early 50s.

The final stage of her career was playing Judy Garland in Boy from Oz

Fantastic performance

Honouring Chrissy Amphlett of the Divinyls
Aug. 2018 • Solo
An interesting counterpoint to Melbourne's existing ACDC Lane, Amphlett Lane has a just a plaque, the name sign, and some artwork to mark it out. Some 25 years ago on a remote Greek island I discovered she had international fame, when a local guardsman discovered I came from the next village to her. He insisted that he borrow my Divinyls tape and played it over and over again to the annoyance of our landlady.
