Surry Hills

NEWTOWN

Vibrant, funky, alternative and edgy Newtown was the first designated ‘shopping precinct’ outside of the CBD in the early days of Sydney, and it remains an exciting place to visit.  Taste craft beer at a microbrewery, window shop in one-of-a-kind boutiques and galleries and spot graffiti by famous street artists on every corner.

SURRY HILLS

One of Sydney’s original villages – second in age only to Glebe – Surry Hills was a farming community, then a den of vice and finally, a colourful inner city cultural hub known for having Sydney’s best coffee!  Walking distance from Central Stadium, Oxford Street and the famous Sydney Cricket Ground, Surry Hills is in the middle of Sydney and in the middle of the action.

PADDINGTON

Known affectionately as ‘Paddo’ to Sydneysiders, this inner city suburb sits comfortably between the city, the nightlife of Kings Cross and the beaches of the east.  Having retained much of its original Victorian architecture, it oozes charm and houses numerous interesting cafes and shops in its picture-postcard-perfect terraces and cottages.

MARRICKVILLE

One of Sydney’s most multicultural suburbs, Marrickville is home to large Greek, Portuguese, Vietnamese and Indigenous Australian communities, to name but a few – which makes for a delicious melting pot of cuisine!  Former industrial spaces throughout Marrickville have been converted to breweries, coffee roasters and gin distilleries so there’s no shortage of a decent beverage in this urban mecca.

If a walking tour of Sydney’s not your thing, why not check out our Sydney bus tours instead?  Cover more ground and rest in air-conditioned comfort in our premium fleet of vehicles, while seeing the sights of the Harbour City on one of our famous half day tours of Sydney.  Join us on the Story of Sydney tour for a true overview of this stunning part of the world, or get out of town on one of our special day trips to the Hunter Valley or the Blue Mountains
