Melbourne has always been a city busy with creative energy. As well as a dynamic and ever-changing network of artist-run spaces, experimental events and exhibitions, it has an excellent public infrastructure of major museums offering travellers visual culture of serious polish and scale. Flinders Lane has the densest concentration of commercial galleries with many more dotted throughout the city and inner suburbs if you're a serious collector of new works. Art Almanac has comprehensive listings of exhibitions. Off Flinders Lane and in other CBD backstreets you'll also find many examples of Melbourne's famed street art. Film, theatre, music and ballet also rank high in the cultural life of Melburnians with plenty for the mainstream audiences, as well as those with edgier tastes.
