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?
Your guide will normally be me, Justin. I'm a recovering lawyer and the "Head Honcho" of AussieYou. About 4 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).
On some weekends my co-host Eddie will lead the tour. Like me, Eddie is an inner-west local and can't wait to show you around.
The slightly wet and cold weather didn't dampen the atmosphere of the tour at all. My partner and I enjoyed ourselves immensely as we discovered new places to eat in a new suburb. We also chatted with new people from different walks of lives. The group was big (I think there was 8 or 9 of us) but Justin was such a great host, asking us questions and making everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. Great way to explore Sydney and meet new people.
The Newtown Chewtown tour was perfect. The food was delicious, Justin’s knowledge of the local area was great and I will definitely return to all the places we visited.
Justin was very informative, engaging and really helpful. We learned a lot about Newtown, the street art and local food. The places we went for food were fabulous. We liked the fact that we could buy our own drinks or additional food when we felt like it. We had lots of fun. Totally recommended!
Great way to experience the area. Even as a local I learnt a lot! Good food!
Really enjoyable and interesting tour, Justin is a great host! A wonderful mix of tasty food and cool street art.
