Located between Elizabeth and Swanston streets, Union Lane extends from Bourke Street to Little Collins Street. It was named after the Union Hotel that was situated on Little Collins Street during the 1860s. It is one of those hidden street art lanes that Melbourne is well known for.
Due to its central location, only high-value production occupied Union Lane in 1895. These included electroplaters, brass finishers, locksmiths, an engraver and lapidary, a stereotyper, a wholesale newsagent and a watchmaker. There were no dwellings by 1895. In 1901, it was home to the Central Club Hotel and a wholesale music store. In 2008, Union Lane became the canvas for the City of Melbourne's Street Art Project which transformed this 'high profile location in the heart of Melbourne's retail hub that was increasingly uninviting and heavily tagged' into a space for a street art mural spanning 550 square metres on both sides of the lane. By the way painting in Union Lane is illegal unless you have a permit. In open sight we have located a hidden cache designed to blend in.
