Newtown, Sydney
(4.4/5 based on 360 reviews on the web)
Once a kangaroo-breeding ground, Newtown is still the most hopping neighborhood in Sydney. After a period of rapid growth in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, the neighborhood was populated by the burgeoning middle classes and amassed a collection of buildings that contemporary residents work hard to preserve. Visit Newtown for some of Sydney's most diverse nightlife, the thriving LGBT scene, and the vibrant street art that draws hundreds of young visitors every year. Using our online itinerary creator, Sydney attractions like Newtown can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
