Top Travel Bloggers Explore New Zealand and Australia Street Art

Street art crosses cultures, language, and continental barriers. I love all of it, although I tend to gravitate towards the brighter, happier images. Today I share a collection of interesting New Zealand and Australia street art. It is part of a travel blogger collaborative series highlighting street art from around the world.

Enjoy this collection . . .

Fremantle Power Station in A Wandering FifePerth Australia photo by Mike Robertson on

Perth, Australia
This Fremantle Power Station shot is taken in the abandoned and ruined Fremantle Power Station. There is a new working station right next to it but the old one seems to be a place for young and old street artists alike to go in and practice their skills. Although the new station is under guard, they seem to turn a blind eye to us entering through the broken fence and climbing through an unbarred window into the abandoned aerosol atmosphere of a very characterful old building. This staircase is a famous picture of this building.

    Wow! Amazing Street Art. I must admit that I’m a little ignorant when it comes to Street Art. But I do love some of the Street Art I’ve seen in the alley ways of Sydney and Melbourne. Fabulous!

    I just loved what I was looking at. These are beautiful pictures on the walls. I wish I could see these in my town of Amherstburg, Ontario, Canada. I doubt that the town’s officials would allow it. They would think that this was messing up are town but I think that it would do the opposite. It would be beautiful.
    Have a beautiful Monday Rhonda. See ya.

    It is amazing what these bloggers have been able to capture with the camera. The Freemantle Power Station photo surprised me. It evokes all sorts of emotions.

    I so enjoy your street art series, Rhonda. The second work of art speaks to me most and that is one that may disappear for a new one to take its place, wah.
