Original Street Art Tour

Meet your driver who will take you to the meeting point for you next tour in Newtown, Sydney’s Inner West. This is an area where you don’t see a lot of international tourists, but it is really a funky area to immerse yourself in. There is street art everywhere. One of my favorite artists is Fintan Magee. Before you come to Sydney, please do yourself a favor and check him out. You will just want to see as much of his realistic large-scale murals as possible!

Explore the iconic grungy streets of Enmore and Newtown - home to the best of Sydney’s Street art, record stores and vintage fashion. Our Culture Scouts - an eclectic mix of artists, designers, and creatives - will guide you through the hidden back streets and alleyways.

They’ll reveal the history of Sydney’s graffiti scene while pointing out original works by internationally recognized Sydney Street artists. Discover the best vintage fashion shops and stop to enjoy a perfectly crafted coffee. You’ll feel like a local as you meet resident street artists, muralists, brewers, barristers, creatives, and unlikely characters, enriching your experience with their own anecdotes of the maverick twin communities.

A local muralist, street artist or creative will be your personal guide on the day. Note: the tour itself is only 2hrs, but with the transfers from your hotel, all up, it is close to 3hrs. We would suggest free time in Newtown to wander in/out of the shops and perhaps also have lunch at one of the many restaurants there prior to meeting your guide. This can be arranged prior to arriving in Sydney.

Return transfer to your hotel.
