McKillop Street is between Queen St, Elizabeth St, Lt Collins and Bourke St. It is a charming red-bricked lane lined with trees, green bollards and little shops and cafes.

A statue of Hoddle can be found in Balcombe Place. Do you think this is a suitable location for the guy who created Melbourne's CBD grid system? Click on the photo to see more.
Apparently it's only there temporarily as part of an art installation. It is certainly something you don't expect in laneway - especially a dead-end lane filled with bins and milk crates. I will review the rest of this laneway at a later date.

Crombie Lane is located between King St, William St, Lonsdale St and Little Bourke. It is possibly the most uninteresting lane I've photographed. On one side there is a huge multi-storey car park and on the other, a skyscraper. Granted it does fulfil its purpose... as an avenue for business people to get to their cars so they can drive home.

Flinders Court is located behind McDonalds on Elizabeth St. It is a t-shaped laneway that stretches from Flinders St and Flinders Lane, with an outlet to Elizabeth St too.
It was raining when I took these photos (see how dedicated I am!!). The lane is mostly used by those living in apartments above (Jake & Phil for example) and by others for less hospitable purposes (until the lighting was introduced recently).

Hosier Lane is surrounded by Flinders St, Flinders Lane, Swanston St and Exhibition St. It is also possibly the only lane visible from Federation Square. The entrance to a small gallery (within the Forum Theatre complex) is hidden halfway up the lane. Hosier Lane also features an artwork installation, amongst the posters and grafitti. It is quite a charming place to visit.

This is Meyers Place. It is between Exhibition St, Spring St, Bourke St and Lt Collins. It is a relatively short lane with some funky bars, and a cafe on the corner (called of all things "Lanes Edge") on the Bourke St end.
