Sunshine Lane

Brunswick, Australia

A hidden lane full of top-quality street art. 


Sunshine lane is one of Melbourne’s best-kept secrets and lies in the northern suburb of Brunswick. Other laneways in Melbourne may be more common to tourists, however, Sunshine Lane really stands out from the rest.

Some of Melbourne’s most renowned street artists have taken turns decorating the lane and the displays are constantly changing. The lane was established by Dean Sunshine, the owner of multiple factories surrounding the laneway.

Currently, the lane contains some strange-looking balaclava men, a deer skull man exposing its chest, a colorful geisha style girl, a large octopus holding a bottle, and an alligator with a spray can alongside many other random, yet amazing paintings. Be quick if you want to see these as they will likely be painted over by other amazing pieces soon.

Know Before You Go

The lane lies off a residential street, close to the main street of Lygon Street. It is open 24/7, but better to visit during the day for good views of the artwork.
