Our Culture Scouts, who are a mix of artists, designers and creators, will guide you through. They’ll reveal how mural creation has shifted from illegal to coveted; pointing out original works by Sydney street artists now internationally recognised, and explaining Sydney’s place in the wider graffiti scene.
Feel like a local as you meet resident street artists, muralists, brewers, baristas, creatives and characters, who enrich your experience with their own anecdotes of the maverick twin communities.
Newtown Train Station
I took the tour during Surry Hills festival on a beautiful Saturday morning at 10am. The group met at a local coffee shop, had a chance to chat as a group and then commenced the tour. We stopped at a a variety of cultural locales; co-working offices, architectural highlights, furniture design firms, unique retail stores, a specialty cheese shop, a working artist's studio and gallery, plus some great historical sites. It was a blast! I had a chance to meet other locals and chat about life, art and city living. Emilya was our tour guide and she was great. She was knowledgable, fun and relaxed. I'm definitely going to do another tour!
