  • Detour Melbourne Street Art Guide


Street art is now one of Melbourne’s greatest cultural attractions. Yet unlike the cities established galleries and exhibition spaces, there is no front door or information desk, no maps and no descriptions of where to find it.
Detour is a curated guide to Melbourne Street Art that makes some of Melbourne’s most celebrated, well hidden and controversial street art available to everyone.
The App includes an interactive map showcasing important street art of social, cultural or historical significance and a gallery view that lets you browse. An essential feature of the app is the inclusion of curated descriptions for each art work to give you important information about the artist and the artwork you are looking at.
Now, pack your camera and off you go!
