  • This morning tour of Newtown is a great way to kickstart your day. You’ll explore this historical neighbourhood with a local guide and discover its internationally acclaimed street art, laugh at its creative graffiti, shop in an incredibly creative marketplace and enjoy a selection of treats — all just 10 minutes from Sydney’s Central Business District.

    We’ll take you off the high street into the laneways and side streets to meet local artisans and watch them ply their trade and sell their creative wares.

    Today Newtown is home to more than 400 independent businesses and is truly a place where different worlds collide. This tour gives you the unique opportunity to meet the artisans themselves, from butchers to brewers, designers to manufacturers, and everyone in between.

    We’ll then stop at three diverse independents that call Newtown home. We’ll taste the most photographed dessert in the world, visit the gelato business that won Italy’s ‘best gelato in the world’ competition and we’ll sample a beer made by Sydney’s premier craft brewers (founded by a rock group and operating from disused warehouses). All the while, you will be learning about the colourful past and present which sets Newtown apart from every other suburb of Sydney. 

    Take the time to buy items of craftwork for yourself or as gifts for friends and family. And it’s all Sydney-made.

    The tour ends where it starts at Newtown railway station and you will have plenty of time to grab some lunch from the many pubs, cafes, bars and clubs in the vicinity. Don’t forget to ask your local guide for tips on what else to see and do during your stay in Sydney.
