Duckboard Place …

Peek down one of Melbourne's grungy laneways to see some surprising street art.

MELBOURNE is my hometown and while I don’t do as much exploring as I should – I much prefer to spend downtime eating Vegemite on toast in my pyjamas rather than gallivanting about the big smoke – I do get out when inspired.

I was motivated to do a little exploring today when in the city for a work meeting and came across this hidden enclave of creativity in one of the more grungy alleys.

This photo was snapped in Duckboard Place, a curve of asphalt winding back from Flinders Lane between Russell and Exhibition streets, which is just one of the locations around town to see spectacular street art.

The Victorian capital is famous for its public art – or, should I call it graffiti – with Blender Lane, Croft Alley,  Hosier Lane, ACDC Lane and Union Lane other corners of the city to spy colourful creations.

TRAVEL TIP … Duckboard Place is also home to some of Melbourne’s best restaurants so make a reservation at Lee Ho Fook or Tonka and combine a spot of art loving with a fine-dining experience.
