About the tour

Discover Melbourne's unique street art and distinct culture through its hidden alleyways and arcades. This is a great opportunity to witness a side of Melbourne not many see; a gritty, dark, artistic and honest perspective that truly illuminates Melbourne's hidden beauty (and charming underbelly). We'll learn about the relevance behind each alleyway, the history and get some unique insight into what it's like to walk the hidden corners of Melbourne. But most importantly, let's just have fun and enjoy the distinct sights! Prepare yourself for a unique experience full of graffiti art, history and, well... who knows? Things are always unexpected inside Melbourne's hidden laneways and alleys. Which is exactly part of why people love Melbourne.

Meet Alexander


Alexander wants to live in a world filled with appreciation for other cultures, free travel and guacamole as a global currency (we’re allowed to dream right?!). “Storytelling has always been a passion of mine. Whether it’s in the form of acting, writing or showing people around my captivating city. It feels great to express my passions in so many different ways” Alex says, while sipping on a decaf soy latte (a very common beverage in Melbourne, also known as Australia's coffee capital). Alexander believes that it would be a waste and disservice to his fellow humans to not show them around his backyard (well, not his actual backyard, but you get the picture). He’s dedicated to sharing his city’s beauty and history, and once and for all proving to people that kangaroos don’t just bounce around everywhere. Alexander has been running tours for the last 4 years, with his most popular tour being Melbourne’s Hidden Penguins (there you go, saved you a trip to Antarctica!). When he is not touring, Alexander works as an actor, filmmaker and blog writer.

Really enjoyed seeing all the amazing ceramic wall art and the graffiti was also worth a visit along the back alleyways. The ceramic tiles were exceptional and they were all Forces related. Chinatown was a sight to see.
