This is near bourke street mall and is another lane reserved for street art in Melbourne. We didn't find it particularly impressive. This lane is also near intersection of Bourke street and Swanston St.

The Union Laneway that runs between Bourke and Little Collins St near David Jones has become disappointing in recent visits. Too much of the lane is covered with very ordinary works with many stupid tags ruining anything that once looked worthwhile. It's a pity that...More

Union Lane is one of the areas set aside for street art, and Melbourne does this really well. We came across it by chance, but it was a pleasant surprise. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and some people will love it, while...More

Another Melbourne lane way filled with street art that is constantly changing. It is worth walking through although sometimes it is not as vibrant as its neighbours. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

We stumbled across this laneway when walking through Bourke street mall. Some really interesting graffiti art in the laneway and you could easily spend an hour or so just looking and admiring the art.

Union Lane is the worst of the graffiti covered lanes in Melbourne and rather than being a place to visit and admire the work it is a mess.

Graffiti can be a real problem in urban areas, but Melbourne has organized a way for the budding artist to ply his/her skill in a specific area of the city. Street art alleys - this was a real surprise. Lots of bright colors and graffiti...More

The Graffiti here is fun to look at. Unfortunately at the time of our visit there was a bit of a fracas. 2 Graffiti artists who obviously didn't see eye to eye and were not easy to ignore. Onlookers seemed to find this amusing and...More

feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the

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
