Melbourne's 86 tram route as a giant open air gallery of street art


Melbourne, Australia is internationally known for its street art and its trams. Melbourne Street Art 86 imagines Melbourne's 86 tram route as though it were a giant open air gallery of street art with its own regular tram service. The pages in the dark blue side bar below have photos of street art by the suburbs the tram passes through. Locations are noted by tram stop, street location and also on maps of the area that can be downloaded or printed. Other Melbourne suburbs rich in street art are also featured.

And now for something completely different...

A bit of a departure from the 86 tram route for a change... There are many fantastic locations along the 86 route, now fairly well documented on the main pages of this site, with the intention that a visitor could spend a day or half day riding the tram between locations and enjoying a great variety of street art, and also the variety of the different parts of Melbourne along the route.

Many of the most spectacular and interesting street art locations however, are elsewhere in Melbourne and its suburbs, or further away from the 86 route than roughly five minutes walk from a tram stop, thus allowing them to be included in the core part of this site.

My explorations of street art have ventured further afield than the 86 and I intend to post a few of those locations here periodically as a selection of content from the Other Locations page of the site.

Here are various shots from in and around Literature Lane, near where Little Latrobe Street meets Swanston Street in the City of Melbourne. It's pretty much opposite the main RMIT campus.
