Overview

Discover Melbourne best living art galleries! Melbourne’s famous street art culture is unlike any other and on this Laneways Discovery Tour, you will explore Hosier Lane, AC/DC Lane and a few other laneways that we’ll keep as a surprise for you during the tour. This 8km running adventure will take you laneway hopping, sharing with you the iconic shops, bars and cafes that Melbournians love to flock to, so you’ll feel just like a local.

Learn more about Melbourne’s rich history as we share stories from the past, present (and future….) and fun facts about the city with you. Witness Melbourne’s distinct variation between the modern high rise architecture and older Victorian style buildings, learning how the two mesh and how both are quintessential in shaping Melbourne’s culture. As we run past the landmarks that shape Melbourne, there will be an ample amount of time to make sure you get that Instagram worthy photo.

As we reach the end of the tour, we will run by Melbourne’s famous Degraves Street, known for housing some of Melbourne’s best cafes. There, we’ll stop running and you’ll be able to relax (because the running is done) and we’ll share Melbourne’s best coffee with you.
