Kingsville Street Art Walk

Even before Streetworks the suburb of Kingsville had a few great walls but now it has a fantastic collection!

A short walk, all fully accessible, will take you past murals that would rival the works from world famous Hosier Lane.

As a bonus there is even a street art cafe amongst the paint- Happy Maree is a local favourite and is filled with art inside and out. It's definitely worth a visit at the beginning or end (or both) of your walk.

Let's start at Happy Maree cafe that has a mural on their front door of a little boy who used to live in the building, it's a wonderful memorial piece but you'll only catch it if the cafe is closed. On the side wall is one of the original Artworks of the area, a full wall of men on horses by Nomad.

Across the road you'll find the gorgeous bird on a wire and a mixed collection along the fence. Take a peek on the other side of where the bird is painted and you'll spot a fantastic goose by Trashort Art.

Continue down Somerville Road towards the city and you'll reach the environmentally inspired Mandela by Carla Gottgens on the side of Piccolo Bakery. Cross over Sommerville Road to admire the Fragile mural on the side of the Kingsville Post Office by Amanda Morgan and, my favourite, a beautiful tribute to famous women by Kelly Manning on the corner of Sommerville and Queensville Street.

Got a taste for inner west art? Seddon also has a great collection of walls!
