Trip Advisor 5* Reviews:

Russell I: Eyes Wide Open - What a Sight - There are some very talented street artists works to be viewed on this terrific walking tour through the laneways and streets of Frankston. All within a comfortable distance starting from the Frankston Library. Be guided by very knowledgeable tour guides who explain information on each art work and the artists. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the street art scene.

Michelle B: Today I went on the Street Art Walking Tour in Frankston, absolutely blown away at the quality and quantity of art in the back lanes and alleys of Frankston. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and explained the varying artists and artwork so we could get the full appreciation of what we were looking at, would highly recommend this tour 1 1/2 hours plus right near the beach and wonderful places to eat & drink at the end of the tour, do yourself a favour and book a tour today.

Judith M: "Our guide Sue from the Centre clearly loves showing off these secrets which are created by local and international artists and pop up in the most unexpected places- many with a socially sensitive message - others with just a burst of colourful intensity."

Michaela C: "This tour gives a whole different perspective on Frankston. An hour and half walk. The art is amazing and coffee included too. Great way to see Frankston."

Tishounette: "My kids took me on this tour for Mother's Day and we all enjoyed it immensely. The artwork is spectacular and the tour guides very knowledgeable and friendly."
