What you'll do

Eat your way through Newtown and check out cool street art! Perfect for dates, singles, all ages and locals who want a fun and unique experience.

Newtown is a truly diverse neighbourhood, and on this experience, you're going to see and taste a bit of everything. We'll start at a popular brewery for a shared tasting paddle or a glass of craft beer, while I give you a run-down on Newtown's history, colourful characters and development.

We'll then set off to sample some of Newtown's multicultural cuisine, with a 3 - 4 food or drink stops included. Cuisine options include Egyptian, Indian, Pakistani, Turkish, Thai, Japanese, "Australian" and more! Vegetarian and vegans are sorted too - Newtown is famous for its many vego-friendly restaurants. As we explore, I'll point out some of the neighbourhood's best street art and introduce you to some of the biggest names in Sydney's street art scene.

We'll finish at one of my favourite restaurants in Newtown, a place that embodies what the neighbourhood is all about. And there's always the option for a nightcap, with some excellent bars close by.

My name is Justin and I'm a recovering lawyer. About 4 years ago I quit my corporate job to work in a happier industry - tourism! I love showing people around Sydney and host 2 of Sydney's top Airbnb Experiences.

Newtown is one of my favourite parts of Sydney and I often recommend my guests visit this diverse, bohemian neighbourhood. I love checking out all the great eateries and bars in Newtown, so stick with me and you'll see the area like a local!

On some dates my co-host Eddie will lead this experience. Like me, Eddie is an inner-west local and can't wait to show you around.

If your dates aren't available, please message me straight away. I may have a solution for you <3

We were very lucky to get both Justin and Eddie on our tour. Together they told us so much about local street art and the stories and history surrounding the pieces. We also stopped off in some food places that I would have never even looked twice at and showed us how they were gorgeous little hidden gems. I’m such a foodie so I loved this aspect. Super friendly and knowledgeable and I can’t wait until I’m back in Sydney to do their other tours. Highly recommend!

Justin’s Newtown food and street art tour was a lot of fun. Justin is an excellent host. He had a deep knowledge of the neighborhood, street art and the restaurants that he took us to. He made sure that everyone was included and was able to tailor the experience to people’s food preferences. The group dynamic was great and Justin and the group grabbed dinner after the tour. I can’t recommend enough and would be happy to take another tour with Justin.

We had a great time. Logistics were super easy. And the Newtown neighborhood is an extremely interesting and essential part of the Sydney experience. Justin’s choices hit all the right notes. Fun from start to finish

My husband and I had a delightful time. Justin was a friendly and knowledgeable ambassador to the vibrant Newtown neighborhood, which is off the typical tourist path. We loved Newtown and enjoyed the fun and unique evening with new friends. A highlight of our visit to Sydney!!!

If you want a true local experience, do this tour. Not only was Justin's food tour fantastic, I got to learn a bit about his small business (he operates a lean tour operation in Sydney). He had some really cool insights into Newtown and it shows he knows his stuff. The food was delicious and the stops were really unique. Would highly recommend his tour once travel restarts. It's more important than ever to support small businesses like his. This was one of the best Airbnb Experiences I've ever done.
