Found around every corner, Newtown’s street art is as varied as it is abundant. From political to whimsical, bright colours beautify quiet neighbourhoods and tower over busy streets. The most well known are the “I Have a Dream” mural found in the middle of King Street and the Welcome to Newtown Postcard at the corner of King and Darley Street. Another favourite is “Housing Bubble” found on the Urban Hotel at Enmore and Station Streets. Turn off of King to wander and you are guaranteed to find something, whether it be rainbow aliens, an intricate stormscape, or a flying eyeball. Each work you see will be unique. And don’t wait around, because the work is fluid and pieces are constantly being painted over!
Go for a wander and find them yourselves!
