Prior to my arrival in Australia, I had read numerous times that Melbourne was the city to beat when it came to street art down under. So we recruited help from our good friends at Global Greeters to give us a tour. Thus when we found street after street lined with art; I was surprised.
Street Art Sydney Australia
The neighborhoods of Enmore and Newtown were our focus. Both areas had variety and quality, which lead to a very pleasant walk. We used King and Enmore streets as our main arteries. With Gladstone, Phillip, and Lennox as side streets to hunt down a lot of great pieces. Outside of the street art, we found King Street to be an excellent walk of its own. It was loaded with good looking restaurants and shops. There didn’t seem to be a desire to insert your piece right on top of two or three others. Which is the thing I liked most about the Sydney art scene over Melbourne’s.
Making your way to the famous Bondi Beach, well you are in for a treat, as there are several excellent panels along the boardwalk. While I didn’t get a chance to explore the area around the beach, I noticed several pieces on the drive over. All and all I found Syndey to be a great place to view street art and would recommend it to anyone who is an enthusiast.
