"16 Lovers Lane" was the sixth album by Australian indie pop group The Go-Betweens, released in 1988 by Beggars Banquet Records. Prior to the recording of the album, longtime bassist Robert Vickers left the band when the other group members decided to return to Australia after having spent several years in London, England; he was replaced by John Willsteed. The album was recorded at Studios 301 in Sydney, Australia, between Christmas 1987 and Spring 1988.

"16 Lovers Lane" was the final release from the original version of the band. The Go-Betweens broke up in 1989 and would produce no other material until Grant McLennan and Robert Forster reformed the band, with a completely different lineup of personnel, in 2000.

The original release of the album contained ten songs, most of them written about Amanda. [cite episode
