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).

          Can't recommend enough

          Justins Newtown food and street art tour was a lot of fun. Justin is an excellent host. He had a deep knowledge of the neighborhood, street art and the restaurants that he took us to. He made sure that everyone was included and was able to tailor the experience to peoples food preferences. The group dynamic was great and Justin and the group grabbed dinner after the tour. I cant recommend enough and would be happy to take another tour with Justin.

          A memorable experience

          The food was delicious and the stories behind the street art were truly fascinating, Justin really gave me a memorable experience.

          Great experience
