The Melbourne Laneways

April 27, 2014

It’s exactly a month today since we landed Down Under and I can’t believe how much we have done and I haven’t managed to write a single blog! I’m going to write about a few of my favourite experiences so expect an influx of posts…

Our first stop was Melbourne to see my sister Josie after almost a years separation. After an emotional reunion it was soon like we had never been apart and although she’s grown up a lot, she’s mostly stayed the same!

One of my favourite parts of Melbourne was the Laneways system they have. Walk away from the main streets and you’ll soon find a number of lanes filled with quirky shops, cafΓ©s and world famous street art. You can pick up a map from the tourist information centre on Federation Square which helps you find which lanes have the best artwork.

It’s really strange when you first turn down some of the streets. These are the dirty alleyways your parents warned you not to walk down alone surely? Well apparently not as you soon find yourself surrounded by incredible artwork and little tucked away bars. If you’ve got the time definitely walk away from the main tourist attractions and see what you discover down one of the laneways.
