Top 5 Graffiti Spots in Brisbane – Street Art That Captures the Imagination

Graffiti certainly has its own unique charm with buildings, alleyways, walls & other structures becoming a one of a kind canvas. Here are some of the best spots to enjoy such graffiti in Brisbane.


Given Terrace in Paddington

As you wander along Given Terrace you will come across some fascinating graffiti & street art that add to the area's overall charm; there is a wonderfully done artwork of a long branch and two birds outside a cage that can be found near the Small Talk Espresso. Look out for the large building that has cats with top hats painted on it or the wall that has quite a few cockatoos along it as well. The Paddington area as a whole is a great place to explore on your graffiti art hunt and is easily reachable from Brisbane apartment hotel options in the city.


Boundary Street Markets in the West End

When it comes to graffiti art that just lends itself to photos and selfies, it is hard to beat the one found here which has two outstretched angel wings with a halo overhead. All you have to do is stand in the right place and take the shot and you will have your own set of wings! Also be on the lookout for a huge graffiti of a cat which shows the more fierce side of felines.


Montague Road in the West End

Another area in the West End, the car park spot on Montague Road offers some creative graffiti creations that are quite edgy and quirky be it a display of a flaming skull or different kinds of monsters. For something lighter, you can head to Frank's Seafood where there are huge street art pieces of fish on the walls outside.


James Street in Fortitude Valley

Those exploring Fortitude Valley also have much to look forward to when it comes to discovering graffiti street art. If you are based at such city accommodation options as iStay River City, this suburb is only a short drive away. When here, look to visit such spots as the area behind Jamie's Espresso on James Street; here you will find a veritable treasure trove of graffiti that showcase some of the best of this burgeoning art scene. A gorilla with a red afro hairdo, a fox and various designs and posters are just some of the things that you can come across. Of course with this kind of art, you never know what new addition you may see.


Close to Mannion Street in Red Hill

If you are in Red Hill near Mannion Street or Enoggera Terrace, look to find this sprawling piece of graffiti art. With its sheer size, you are definitely not going to miss it. The scale and scope alone are quite impressive, though it is the wonderfully portrayed imagery and detail that will really catch your attention. With a title "let your passion burn", this art piece showcases a wonderful collage of animal images intertwined amidst striking colours.
