Newtown

Including Enmore, Marrickville, St Peters, and Erskineville

Often referred to as the Bohemian/hipster capital of Sydney, Newtown is a historical and cultural melting pot. Traces of its 19th century history are found in everything from its architecture (the Trocadero is one of Sydney’s last 19th-century dance halls still standing), to its landmarks (the woman believed to have inspired Dickens’ Miss Havisham character is buried in Camperdown Cemetery).

Amidst its deep seated history, Newtown and its neighbouring suburbs of Enmore, Marrickville, St Peters and Erskineville, are today renowned for their cultural diversity and youthful vibrancy. Newtown’s King Street houses a wealth of restaurants, cafes, and pubs spanning cuisines from across the globe, while niche, boutique cafes aren’t loathe to wind their way into its narrow side-streets and into the locals’ daily routines.
