Melbourne’s laneways are the stuff of legend—tourists travel across the globe to see them, locals take short cuts through them, and graffiti artists make their mark on dark, grungy walls. But there’s one thing our famous laneways aren’t, green—but that’s about to change.
Coromandel Place is now home to 14 planter boxes on the western side of the laneway feature home gardening favourites like Boston Ivy and Creeping Fig that will takeover the wall in years to come.
There were limitations on where plants could be placed, but gaps have been finished off with murals, including a two-storey number by Ghostpatrol.
If you find yourself wandering around Melbourne’s laneways and are in need of a coffee, here are Melbourne’s best laneway cafes.
