What we'll do

Newtown is a truly diverse neighbourhood, and on this experience, you're going to see and taste a bit of everything! 

Your tour starts at a popular brewery for a shared tasting paddle or a glass of craft beer. You'll get a run-down on Newtown's history, colourful characters and development, before heading off to explore the neighbourhood.

You'll sample a range of Newtown's multicultural cuisine, with a minimum of 4 food stops included. Cuisine options include Egyptian, Indian, Pakistani, Turkish, Thai, Japanese, "Australian" and more! Vegetarian and vegans are sorted too - Newtown is famous for its many vegan-friendly restaurants. As we explore, you'll see some of the neighbourhood's best street art.

The tour finishes at a restaurant that embodies what Newtown is all about and serves up delicious, home-made style food. And there's always the option for a nightcap, with some excellent bars close by.

Mouth-watering food, delicious drinks, cool street art and a great crew to hang with - what are you waiting for?

About your guides

justinYour guide will normally be me, Justin. I'm a recovering lawyer and the "Head Honcho" of AussieYou. About 3 years ago I quit my corporate job to work in a happier industry - tourism! I love showing people around Sydney and bringing together people from all over the world. Newtown is one of my favourite parts of Sydney and I often recommend my guests visit this diverse, bohemian neighbourhood. I love checking out all the great eateries and bars in Newtown, so stick with me and you'll see the area like a local!

I have also solo travelled all through South America, Europe and Asia, visiting over 40 years. I have previously lived and studied in China - yep, 我会说中文!(I can speak Chinese).

          Fun afternoon in Newtown

          We had a fun afternoon walking the streets of Newtown looking at some street art and eating some snacks along the way. Eddy did a great job hosting the tour. Great new find was the Rising Sun motorcycle workshop and cafe. Finished the tour with a beer tasting at Young Henry’s. What’s not to like about that?!

          Best tour in Sydney 全悉尼最好的旅行團

          I've been here for 2 years, and yet I didn't realize how much I missed out until I joined this tour! This is what a tour should be like- to immerse yourself in the local culture. Unlike other tours I joined before, AussieYou is really down to earth, they take you to do things like any locals (the guides are locals) instead of going to some fancy restaurants and you ended up having to buy expensive souvenirs. The guides are very knowledgeable and definitely know the backgrounds of the places they show you, I've never been on a tour that is so informative yet so fun! Suitable for all ages! Even if you have been here for a long time, this tour still teaches and let you enjoy new things. The guide also speaks exceptionally good Mandarin ( I'd say better than I do), would highly recommend if you want a taste of aussie life but you prefer to speak in Mandarin. 我來了兩年都沒有發現我錯過了這麼多東西,这個團太好了!跟我以往參加過的旅行團不一樣, 他是真的讓當地人做你的導遊, 讓你切身體驗澳洲人的生活 ( 他平時跟朋友也會去的地方)。 他什麼東西都不會逼你買, 帶你去的地方也是實在當地人會去的。 我從未參加過一個團可以學到這麼多東西還可以這麼好玩。我以前跟我爸媽去的大公司導遊團都好無聊, 但是這個團既可以讓你學到很多東西,又好好玩, 什麼年紀都適合。 儘管你來了很久,這個團還是會給你不一樣的體驗!而且導遊很牛逼, 中文說得可溜呢, 全程用中文溝通沒問題!
