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

fff

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.

CLIFTON HILL - Queens Pde

Melbourne Street Art on the 86 Tram Route: Clifton Hill

Note: Click on any image to see an enlarged version


There are a couple of street art pieces along the broad expanse of Queens Parade in Clifton Hill. Many more  are in side streets leading off Queens Parade and parallel with it, including a large number around the walls of buildings on Dummett Crescent near the Clifton Hill transport interchange (stop 25). There are also a considerable number in and around an area next to the creek that runs between the road bridge between stops 25 and 26 and the railway bridge that carries the Hurstbridge train line. What follows is by no means all there is to see; I have selected works that appeal to me. Also bear in mind that some works are replaced with others at times so what you see here as of January 2013 may not all be there at a later time.
