Walk-to-art tours unlock the veiled underground Melbourne art scene. You will never look at graffiti the same way again.

Wednesday and Saturday, 1.45pm (for a 2pm departure). Start to finish: 1.45pm–6pm approximately (including the extra hour of cheese and wine after the tour).
There is a definite predisposition to conceal the cool in Melbourne; the harder it is to find, the better it must be. So it's handy to have someone that will unlock the secrets of Melbourne's local art scene for you. Walk-to-art offers just that, a guide to street art, artist run spaces and art in galleries.
Street art and graffiti add to Melbourne's gritty, yet charming culture. But it's difficult to know which inner-city alley leads to a work of art or a dumpster, and at times that dumpster will be the artwork.
The three hour walking tour changes itinerary with what's shaking, so there's no set program. The perfect way to discover Melbourne's thriving arts scene, Walk-to-art lets you meet the artists and curators and really get in on the action. With wine and cheese at the conclusion of each tour, this may just be the fanciest way to slum it in Melbourne's street scene.
