Melbourne’s laneways and arcades make the city centre famous. They’re the canvas for the city’s adored street art and hide Melbourne’s best bars and cafes. It’s pretty rare to find a city where you actually want to spend time in the city centre, but you could lose hours following Melbourne’s laneways & arcades.
The gorgeous arcades get less hype, but they offer a refuge from the noise of the city (and often, the rain). The arcades fuse with alleyways and laneways, making it easy to duck into an arcade off Little Collins Street and pop out in a laneway a couple of blocks away, a little disoriented but thrilled by tumbling through Melbourne’s rabbit holes.
I love the contrast of the heritage facade Tomasetti Building with the modern street art on the side of the building. Cnr Flinders Lane & Rothsay Lane
