A neighborhood with a Greenwich Village vibe, Newtown is a great place to stray from tourist traffic and duck into funky clothing, books, homewares and tea shops housed in Victorian-style buildings. The plentiful cafes and restaurants along King Street have earned the roadway the nickname of 'Eat Street.'

I love Newtown, the eclectic side of it is awesome. Anything is seen here and worth seeing, wether it disturbs you or opens your eyes or even makes you feel right at home, go be in Newtown. Never had a bad time here. So many places to eat, to drink, to have coffee. It's endless. Put your walking shoes on,... More

Newtown or the 'Eat Street' of the Inner West as it is also known is a fabulous place to wander the shops, whether 2nd hand, retro clothes, antiques, affordable furniture, catch a movie at the Dendy, or stuff yourself silly with every kind of yummy cuisine from vegetarian to Sri Lankan, Korean BBQ, Indian, Middle Eastern, Turkish, Thai- you name...

where do i start, you can eat, drink your way from one end to the other, very busy all the time with traffic, but i think that adds to the atmosphere .

Newtown is awesome place for travelling to for a nice walk from one end of King St to the other. It has some nice little cafe's which are pet and baby friendly and then some yummy Thai restaurants and italian! Night Life is always eccentric.

Love going to Newtown, very edge place becoming more gentrified as time goes on. Good place to find a good gig of an underground band, and good op shopping. Creative and on the edge. Prefer it to Darlinghurst more raw.

Just a short bus trip from Sydney's CBD lies Newtown, an older inner-city suburb. Close by to Sydney Uni, Newtown has always been a bit avant garde, and filled with interesting characters. Filled with interesting bars, cafes, restaurants and shops, Newtown is gay-friendly and accessible via bus or train.
