STARTING POINT

Start this route at Clifton Park’s basketball half court.

Right behind the court, you’ll find the first Street Art spot of this route. Many artists contributed to painting this big wall.

Curious fact: Gilpin and Clifton Parks sit on what used to be quarries from which stone was extracted. When they were exhausted, they became enormous craters and in 1947 the council purchased them and it took 17 years to fill them back up and turn them into parklands!

Next Stop: Head south to Gilpin Park and find a colourful wall in it!

STOP 1

This mural showcases one amazing piece after another! Various artists have contributed to bring colours, shapes and characters to Gilpin park!

If you find it hard to get to the wall, click on the image below to see its location.

Next Stop: A colourful alley!

STOP 3

Head East towards Sydney Road and find an alley located between Edward and Weston Streets (click on the image below to find the exact location).

This alley is full of sweet colours! Pink, blue, yellow, green! Spot the one that reads SIREPS. We asked the artist about the intention behind his work and this is what he told us:

Helps to fill my boring life with some colour and to feed my ego and make this old man feel cool still… 

It was awesome to paint with DSCR, someone who shares mutual friends for many years but this was the first time we got down together. He is a legend of the Melbourne graffiti scene and was a part of the history making first ever 6 car whole train over 20 years ago which blew my mind to see in the flesh!

STOP 7

Keep walking or riding towards Lygon Street, enjoy the little treasures that you’ll find along the way. When you hit Lygon Street take your left until you find Sunshine Lane (click on the image below to find the exact location).

This is probably Brunswick’s largest street art gallery. It holds amazing work from various artists. Take your time and walk around the many pieces that show how different styles and colours can live together.

STOP 8

Not too far from the previous stop, you will find ABER’s best kept secret. In a hidden lane, you will find a gorgeous owl guarded by two Greek gods. Isn’t it amazing how ABER was able to play with a roller door’s texture and bricks?

(this spot is quite a hidden gem – click on the image below to find it on maps)
