It’s your time to Xplore Melbourne

Let your smart device unlock art, music, venues and retail in Melbourne, like never before!

Thanks to the City of Melbourne and the State Government of Victoria, Xplore Melbourne is a free Augmented Reality outdoor art exhibition for everyone to enjoy. Musicians, street artists, etc will have their art come to life 

Xplore Melbourne is a self guided covid safe treasure hunt featuring street art, music, and discovery points which will feature hidden bars and restaurants, retail, accommodation and activity discounts.

Start the treasure hunt at the corner of Swanson Street and Collins Street, scan the QR code to activate the Acknowledgement of Country and find the clue for the next location. Continue this through the whole 10 locations to unlock art, music and some unique specials for Xplore participants. If you get stuck or the clues don't click, never fear, the map on this website will help you find your way.

Each month we will feature different artists, different places to discover, different treasures to unlock, different prizes, competitions, free tickets, etc.

Xplore Melbourne acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and recognises the continuing connection to lands, waters and communities. We pay our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and to Elders both past and present.

Re-discover Art in 

Some of Melbourne's favourite artists, street artists and fine artists will have their works on display. 

They have been reimagined into augmented reality art with movement and sound.

Keep an eye out for our moveable art which will be visiting different destinations around Melbourne over the course of the event



The City comes alive with MUSIC. Walk down laneways and to see augmented reality musicians 'busking' especially for you.

We have partnered with the GRID Series & Melbourne Symphony Orchestra to being a schedule of changing artists over 6 months


RE-vitalise venues in

Bars, clubs, restaurants, wine bars, cafes, laneways, hidden treasures

Melbourne has changed while we've been away but some of our favourites are still there and some new treasures are ready to be discovered

RE-support RETAIL in

We love Melbourne for its fashion as well as all of the other magic we own.

Let's rejoice and get back amongst our favourite retail stores to show them we love them. Watch out for Dvate, Meggs, musicians and some wonderful stories popping up in retail spaces in Melbourne.
