Newtown is a suburb of Sydney and is about 4kms from Sydney's central business district. A prosperous suburb in the late Victorian era, there are still many fine mansions among the modern houses and a number of the large 19th century industrial properties have been converted into swanky apartments which fits with the renewed trendy vibe of the area.
The main street of Newton is King Street and this is the centre of entertainment and commerce for the area. Together with Enmore Road, they comprise over a 9km distance with some 600 shop fronts. King Street is often called "Eat Street" because of all the cafes, pubs and restaurants offering a huge variety of different cuisines.
There are a number of accommodation options available to the traveller from backpackers to apartments to holiday homes. As it is such a short distance from Central Sydney and there is a regular train service, Newtown is a great place to stay if you want to avoid the bustle of the city centre but still be close enough to travel there easily.
Newtown Shops - With a huge variety of shops Newtown is a shopper's paradise for those that love the quirky. Take a visit to All Buttons Great and Small, this shop provides a treasure trove of buttons to film crews and the public alike. Perhaps you have always wanted to own your very own exclusive, one off, authentic leather handbag? If so stop at Leo Monk handbags and take your pick. On the last Saturday of each month the Newtown markets are held. Here you will find novel toys, books, alternative fashion and a variety of artworks by local artists.
"Walking the Street" exhibition - In September and October for two weeks the "Walking the Street" exhibition takes place with various shops displaying art from young artists.
Newtown Festival - The year's highlight in Newton is the huge Newtown Festival which is held at the Camperdown Memorial Park. Here you will find a mixture of over 200 stalls selling everything you could think of, three stages for live music ranging from the blues to indie-electronica and all sorts in-between.
The King Street Theatre - The King Street Theatre (formerly Newtown Theatre) has a wide variety of performances throughout the year, including Short + Sweet, the biggest festival of ten minute theatre in the world. Countless theatre professionals' careers have been launched here.
St Stephens Anglican Church and Cemetery - This Newtown landmark is one of the best Gothic Revival style churches in New South Wales. A visit to the church and surrounding cemetery provides a peaceful retreat from the surrounding hustle and bustle. People have been coming here since 1849 and, even today, it has a large congregation.
The Enmore - This heritage listed theatre is Sydney's oldest and longest running live theatre. This 100 year old theatre, with its stylised art deco fašade, hosts a plethora of bands, comedy acts and other performances from around the world.
The Vanguard - This bar and restaurant has a 1920's feel to the interior. The Vanguard also is a live music venue and combines quality entertainment with stylish dining. Many musical greats like Elvis Costello, Missy Higgins, Jimmy Barnes and Neil Finn have played here. They also have cabaret as a regular feature and their own original burlesque productions. With such a diverse selection of entertainment and a delicious menu everyone can find something they like here.
The Trocadero Dance Hall - opened in 1889 and is one of the last 19th century dance halls still standing in Sydney. Over the years it has been a dance hall, cinema, skating rink, boxing venue, restaurant and various other shops and factories. In 2007 a major restoration took place to return this building to its former glory.
