Melbourne has a brand new Street Art Precinct! Artists Rone, Smug, Dvate, Adnate and Fintan MaGee have painted epic murals over one of the wettest weekends of the year (I don’t know how the paint even stuck to the walls in those conditions!) and the results are spectacular.

Our favourite was this gorgeous painting of the endangered orange bellied parrot by Dvate. The detail is incredible, well worth going out of your way to check it out!

 

And this is only the beginning, up to eight more murals are planned for the near future.

The Upper West Side Street Art Precinct is a very short walk from Southern Cross Train Station on the corner of Spencer and Little Bourke.
