Adds to the vibe of the area
Apr. 2021
During our stay in Newtown, we basically stumbled on most of the murals, there are quite a few on king street, however if you want to investigate further there are many blogs to assist in finding all the murals, for us the murals just add to the gritty ness and vibe to this amazing eclectic area.

Dont bother

Incredibly disappointing trip to Newtown. I didn't find anything online that prepared me for the very faded, old, worn out, hard-to-find artwork in Newtown. There is no guide to go from place to place and I found out that many of the murals pictured in the reviews have been painted over or replaced. If you are thinking you can just go wander the streets of Newtown and find the pictures that you can see online, you will be very disappointed as I was. I HAVE A DREAM is old and cracking .....and asking lots of the locals where I could see more paintings, was a joke. Nobody knew where the murals were....until I got to IGA and a shop assistant directed me out to the car park. There were so many cars parked in front of it that it would be impossible to take a decent picture of the mural and I just gave up on finding the others. It was one of the most disappointing things I've ever done on any tourist trip. Don't bother looking for the beautiful murals that are shown on line. They don't exist anymore.

Take home more from the Gritty Newtown walking tour
Mar. 2021
If you fancy street arts and history (of Newtown) you should have this self-guided audio walk "Gritty Newtown" included in your itinerary. It's one of many free walking tours from the City of Sydney Council on the Cya On The Road app and definitely worth a try.

Very crazy like no else

Walking across this street will reveal how vibrant Newtown community is. All ages, all orientations, queers, straights and many more.

Old buildings, graphics on walls, plenty number of shops and restu play a role in enriching the experience. If you are around, it's a must-visit destination.

Street art and opShops galore

Great spot for Op shops and street art. We only had a couple of hours and I wish we had more time. There was a non dairy gelato shop that sold the best coconut and almond ice cream I have ever had .

Some great independent stores and good graffiti to shoot
Oct. 2019 • Solo
I only had an hour to walk around the area, but there was a lot of street art worth shooting, and lots of quirky stores and many good looking restaurants, as well as the inevitable multiplicity of coffee shops. Well worth a longer wander....

Hidden gems

There is a huge and diverse range of high quality street art on king street and down many of the side streets. Definitely a good excuse for a walk around and plenty of quality bars and cafes to relax at afterwards.
