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.

Northcote, extra....

This is the third of a series of photographs that did not make it to the main suburb pages on the site - these would have been on NORTHCOTE - High Street.

In this case it was for the simple reason that they were too far away from the tram line (over 200m), and given there are already 110 photographs on the Northcote page, this didn't seem like a case for bending the rules even though there was several works here I enjoying discovering.

These photographs start with emerging from the first alley at the top of Little Eastment Street into the north end of Helen Street, near Arthurton Road. They finish looking across Arthurton Road itself. Referencing the main location Northcote map, these are right at the top on the left.

Here is a little rough and ready map of them.

Looking right, emerging from the alley.
