Australia's dreamiest art right this way.

There is something spectacularly bohemian about street art.

Not only does it offer a colourful escape from the concrete jungle, but it gives off a vulnerable sense of a city's culture and identity (without the hefty entry price of a famous landmark).

Sure, the Whitsundays, Sydney's Harbour and Uluru have the official honour of being perhaps the most photographed spots in Australia, but in order to give your Instagram feed that bona fide wanderlust glow, swap the tourist spots for the sidewalk.

Ahead, 11 murals scouted from across Australia, for your exploring and posting pleasure.
