The best things to do in Newtown

This Sydney suburb that has inspired more songs than any other, and it's worthy of those Arias. We love Newtown for the pubs: the Courty, the Towny, the Bank and the rest.

We love Newtown for the music - the Enmore Theatre and the Vanguard which owns Sydney jazz. We love it for the food - Bloodwood and Gelatomassi. And we love it for the Dendy. We even love it for the students: those hordes from Sydney Uni, after all, are a big part of the whole sharehouse appeal of this very cool suburb.
