I'll show you the best perspectives and twists of eclectic Newtown. Find out why there is no McDonalds to be found. Meet emerging and established designers and visit specialist shops. Check out the acclaimed street art, enjoy thirst-quenching locally brewed craft beer, taste mouthwatering strawberry watermelon cake (made on the premises). Walk past shops caught in a time warp, vintage clothing, quality handicrafts, handmade handbags. Savour sensational award-winning gelato (the best in the world made onsite). Newtown has it all. And experience Newtown like a local resident. Discover Sydney’s coolest multicultural inner-city suburb with me, where past and present converge and enjoy a shopping experience like no other, just a heartbeat from Sydney but worlds away. I'll show you all the must-see things to do and I'll add all the best tips for your post-tour and remaining trip. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes as we'll walk some steps during this morning adventure. We'll visit cool local places and shops for you to try some of the locals' fave. Nothing beats insider knowledge from a local.
I was born and raised in Sydney & been guiding professionally ever since leaving high school. I have requested the assistance of Borana, Michael and Linda to help give you an awesome experience. Actually, as a Sales & Marketing Manager (now with Sydney Urban Adventures), I have been guiding for over 30 years! I have visited over 15 different countries around the world. I know how it feels to be in a strange land when experiencing a new destination. I want you to experience Sydney as if you were a friend of mine. Besides a tour guide, I'm a lover of drama, films, sunshine and interesting people. Showing off Sydney is my passion and hobby!

Originally called 'New Town' Sydney's first retail suburb. Established in the 1830s. Today, Newtown does not boast a shopping mall anywhere. All businesses are independently owned and operated on the high street. Meet and interact with locals that successfully booted out large franchise businesses from within its boundaries. You'll be learning about the colourful past and present that sets Newtown apart from every other suburb of Sydney.
