Known to most locals as the suburb surrounding legendary (and oft-imperilled) music venue the Annandale Hotel, this Inner West suburb has a rich local history – check out the colonial architecture and Federation homes. There's a strong café culture – try Revolver in north Annandale – as one would expect in the Inner West – and plenty of local colour. For instance, did you know that Mark Twain spent a stint here? He was hosted by Sir Henry Parkes.
