a weekender guide to sydney's newtown


What a funky little suburb that really is a hipster’s paradise. It’s beyond my definition of hipster though, even a step or few past San Francisco’s Mission District. Full of street art & graffiti murals, it’s a pretty colorful place. I am sharing my weekend getaway guide to Sydney’s Newtown below on the blog as your ultimate itinerary for 1-2 days in Newtown:

I came here with a friend for a girls’ getaway (since I live in Manly which is on the complete opposite side of Sydney) and stayed at a quirky little industrial chic hotel called The Urban Newtown - very centrally located and won’t break the bank as it’s suited for budget travelers. The rooms are cozy, but we were really happy with the hospitality and our stay there! The other main option would be Airbnb in this area.
