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:  Brunswick [under contruction]

(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 allowing them to be 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 suburb pages on the 86 tram route, but these may be added at a later date.

Getting to Brunswick

Brunswick is directly north of central Melbourne and can be reached by the number 19 tram or the Upfield train line.

The sequence of photographs on this page roughly follows a circle starting at Jewell railway station, following the Upfield bicycle path north (which runs along the side of the railway line) to the upper part of Brunswick, and then cutting across to the Sydney road and returning south to approximately the same point.
