Another great street art laneway, Flinders Crt is located near the Elizabeth St entrance of Flinders St Train Station. It has some large interesting pieces with vivid colours. A recent council project has seen the whole laneway repainted by local artists. Talking to one of the organisers, it is part of an initiative to keep the laneways active and a vibrant part of the visitors experience – it also has an interesting byproduct of keeping the less desirable aspects (alcohol and drugs abuse culture) of a large city minimised.

I had a catch-up with some old work colleagues last week in a part of the city that I rarely visit. On the walk back down Flinders Lane to get to the train station, I noticed some decent street art on a Laneway wall. Flinders Ct is a narrow laneway between Flinders Lane and Flinders St and runs parallel to Elizabeth St. I recognised one of the old factory/warehouse buildings in the middle of the lane and realised that this laneway was one I had explored before when looking for old architecture but at that time there hadn’t been any art work. The work looks fairly fresh and is mostly complete murals. I went back earlier this week and photographed the various walls…I will be adding this new site to my regular survey walks.
