The Melbourne Poetry Map is a series of eight poetry walks through the Melbourne central business district.

These are maps to another Melbourne – by people who live and write here, people who leave their stories and their hopes like invisible murals on bleak city walls. This is poetry off the page and off the stage, yours to enjoy on a street or in a laneway or just travelling quietly in the Melbourne in your mind.

Start your journey on the map below. Each point on the map is the start of a walk.
