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.

Melbourne Street Art locations away from the 86 Tram Route: North Richmond & Abbotsford

(Click on any image to see an enlarged version)

Many of the most spectacular and interesting street art locations in Melbourne and its suburbs are away from the 86 tram route, or further away than roughly five minutes walk from an 86 tram stop, thus not typically included in the core part of this site.

The Other locations pages are the setting for photographs and location information for street art from these areas. These pages do not currently have maps or guides like the main page of the site, but these may be added at a later date.

Getting there

North Richmond
North Richmond is just next to the eastern border of the City of Melbourne. North Richmond railway station is on both the South Morang and Hurstbridge lines (some Hurstbridge line trains do not stop at the station). You can also catch the 109 tram from Collins Street in the city and alight at tram stop 32.

The locations in North Richmond are fairly close together, mostly clustered along the train line or close to Hoddle Street.

Abbotsford is just north of North Richmond and can be reached by the same train line as North Richmond, alighting at Collingwood or Victoria Park station.

Visiting some of the northern Abbotsford locations will require a bit of walking as they are some distance from one another and from transport. For example, the Chomp Cafe, one of the best locations, is 600m from Victoria Park Station, though this is also very close to the Yarra river.
