What you can expect
Newtown really does have it all. This much-loved inner-city enclave is Sydney’s creative heart, and this small group Sydney Shopping Tour of the precinct will introduce you to its unique beat. You’ll see amazing street art, enjoy intriguing retail experiences and have the opportunity to savour delicious multicultural cuisine and sweet treats.
You’ll meet your guide and group of fellow guests at Newtown railway station (three stops from Central on the T2 line) and head off on a walk of discovery, away from the high street and into the laneways and side streets of this fascinating neighbourhood. You’ll see local artisans at work and chat to them about their creative endeavours. You’ll visit a selection of the more than 400 independent businesses that give this area its retail vibrancy. If you’re looking to purchase souvenirs of your visit to Sydney, or gifts for loved ones, this is the place to do it!
In between retail stops, your guide will take you to three acclaimed purveyors of edible eye candy. You’ll taste what’s claimed to be the world’s most photographed dessert, a frothy boutique craft brew, and the divine gelato that won Italy’s ‘best gelato in the world’ competition.
