Hosier Lane, Melbourne

Hosier Lane

Music, art and creative pursuits are a big part of our lives, which is one reason why we moved from Singapore to Melbourne. Whilst Singapore has progressed in leaps and bounds on the arts scene, cities like Melbourne remain streaks ahead. There is so much to see and do in Melbourne every weekend (well, at least during pre-covid days but we are confident that Melbourne will bounce back in no time).

Walking along the Yarra River, visiting the NGV and Federation Square or enjoying the entertainment offered by street baskers adds some spice to our lives. Art sculptures and street art located all over the city contributes to the creative atmosphere and vibe as well.
