Croft Alley, Melbourne


In Melbourne for a few days to see some of the Australian Open also meant an opportunity to visit  Croft Alley. I have been wanting to visit since seeing the street art and graffiti featured by Joe from Melbourne Snaps.

A little dingy and somewhat hard to find, Croft Alley is near China Town. Amongst the myriad tags and graffiti that make this lane way a photographers must see is the pharmacy inspired Croft Institute bar and nightspot. Our first stop after arriving here on Friday night.

  1. Are you on your travels again Rae, enjoy Melbourne. The young man sitting in front of the rather depressing mural is definitely giving you 'the look'..

  5. That's my kind of thing too. In your Sydney visits have you seen the Newtown and St Peters graffiti.
