Quirky/offbeat, Popular with locals

For a non-touristy take on Sydney, inner-west 'burb Newtown is known for its alternative, eccentric culture, captured in blog and book Humans of Newtown. Local university students flock here, and it's a magnet for lesbians, gays, and drag queens. King Street is where you'll find a variety of cheap eats, with Asian, Italian and Spanish cafés, restaurants, and bars alongside independent fashion and design shops. The fun continues on Enmore Road; head this way for Newtown microbrewery Young Henry's and Enmore Theatre. Camperdown Memorial Rest Park, behind a street art-fringed cemetery, is where hipsters and dog walkers hang out, and hosts November's Newtown Festival. You'll also discover creative scenes and thirst-quenching bars in nearby Erskineville and Marrickville. Eveleigh's Carriageworks arts center and Saturday farmers market, edgier Redfern, and up-and-coming Chippendale are also within walking distance.
