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.

    Asian shops (especially the Chinese, Thailand, etc.) are many, like Koenji atmosphere has little hippie atmosphere. (Lol) city and considerably different from the atmosphere, but the guests can enjoy delicious dishes and ice cream! Located near the University of Sydney.

    Looking for a more alternative vibe in Sydney? This is your place. Newtown is the hip neighborhood of the city and the nightlife also leaves no wish unfulfilled. Numerous choices of cafes, bars and restaurants scattered pel King St. (the busiest). Some bars work up (a bit) later than usual too. Do not forget to check!

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
