A guide to Darwin's street art
An unexpected surprise when wandering Darwin's city streets is the murals that adorn the walls of our laneways. Since 2017, the Darwin Street Art Festival has brought vibrancy and colour to the city's walls, with international, national and local artists contributing to the large-scale art gallery.
To really experience the artworks, download the Darwin Street Art Festival app before starting your walk. The App provides further insight into the artists and their works, and also brings some murals to life using augmented reality - keep an eye out for the stickers when you're out and about!
The home of Darwin's Street Art lies in Austin Lane and features some of the largest murals in the Street Art collection. We recommend starting your tour here, before making your way to West Lane to find more hidden artistic gems.
Shadforth Lane is the newest addition to Darwin's Street Art scene, with 9 murals painted during the 2020 Festival.
