Street art on Hosier Lane Melbourne

Street art on Hosier Lane Melbourne

The lane ways of Melbourne are a must see tourist attraction. The street art is constantly evolving as artists add new murals and tags of the walls each day. These pedestrian only roads are often extremely busy with people. I was lucky to capture the above view down Hosier Lane without people in the photograph. There must be dozens if not hundreds of individual artists work featured in this scene. With murals and tags on so many deferent layers it would be impossible to credit the artists. Out of all the many photographs of the laneways of Melbourne this one stood out as a typical scene of what to expect in terms of colours and intensity. 

Evan Walker Bridge over Yarra River

Evan Walker Bridge over Yarra River

The Southbank Pedestrian Bridge is officially called the Evan Walker Bridge. It’s a footbridge over the Yarra River in central Melbourne. Linking Flinders Street Station to the Southbank. This photograph was taken a few hundred metres to the east on Flinders Walk. In the foreground is the iconic Princes Bridge (or at least small parts of it) that frame the photograph. Whilst the day was far from sunny, it was a warm summers day. Hence the number of people cruising up and down the Yarra River on small boats. In the background you can see some of the skyscrapers of Melbourne including the Thales building and new construction going on.

Southbank and Yarra River – Melbourne

Southbank and Yarra River - Melbourne

This is the view walking along Flinders Walk across the Yarra River towards the Southbank precinct of Melbourne. The tallest building you can see is Eureka Tower. 297 metre tall skyscraper and home to Melbourne Skydeck on the 88th floor which is the highest public vantage point of any building in the Southern Hemisphere. This recent visit I didn’t make it up to the skydeck but I have been up there in the past. Other buildings you can see in this photography include many hotels including the Quay West, The Langham Melbourne and the Mercure Melbourne Southbank. Whilst the weather wasn’t quite as sunny as it was back 2012 at least this 2023 photograph is includes a little more of the Yarra River.

Hornby Lighthouse

Hornby Lighthouse

Constructed in 1858 this is one of Australia’s most important lighthouses. Standing bright at the southern entrance to Port Jackson and Sydney Harbour. In my two week trip to Sydney, this was location was the furthest I ventured from the city. Taking a ferry from Circular Quay to Watsons Bay. Then walking the 3 kilometres around Green Point Reserve and Camp Cove to the lighthouse. On the other side of the water is North Head on the right and the lights of Manly behind the light house.
