Book yourself onto our underground culture graffiti tour of one of Australia’s most artistic cities. Our street art Melbourne tour is led by graffiti artists renowned for their work and takes you on an excursion into the hearts of alternative culture.
There are two basic tours on offer, each of which explores hubs of Australia’s street art scene. It is also possible to do both tours in one. The Central Business District tour has a minimum number of three participants, and a maximum of 12, while the Fitzroy tour has a minimum of three and a maximum of 10.
Tours are led by a respected street artist who has spent a long time as a part of Melbourne’s alternative and graffiti scene, making them second-to-none in their expertise.
You will also visit some famous local studios, founded in 2000 as a home for alternative art. Very quickly the studios became synonymous with graffiti art as well as a studio for students at the Victorian College of Art, and is popular today for the diversity of art on display.
Here, a graffiti artist will teach you how to stencil and lead a workshop in stencilling. You will also get an opportunity to create your own stencils and take them home with you, providing a superb and novel team-building opportunity for corporate bookings.
Along the way, you will get to grips with the trendy areas you are walking through whilst observing the masses of impressive street art that adorns its walls. From huge commissioned murals to tucked-away and otherwise hidden alleyways covered in intricate designs, you will see a side to Melbourne that very few others have.
You will also get an opportunity to be refreshed by produce from the fashionable local markets, including food, beer, wine and soft drinks.
You might meet street artists at work on your graffiti tour, and see how pockets of the city have been transformed by alternative art. Concurrently, you will have opportunities to ask questions about how the graffiti has shaped and responded to the city and the nation’s culture and politics. It is a tour that is both educational and immensely entertaining.
Perfect for street art, visual art, fine art and culture aficionados, as well as anyone with an interest in getting under the skin of a city in the most unique way possible.
