If you want art, culture and style, head to the inner-west suburb of Newtown. The long and winding King Street retail stretch which is the focus of the suburb has everything from second-hand book shops that are open until mid-night, cafes, Thai restaurants, art and craft stores, vintage fashion outlets, and old and unusual furniture stores.
The Newtown Designers Market is found just off the main drag, only a minute from the Newton station. The market adds to the wonderful eccentricity of Newtown, and supports the culture that values and appreciates unique, non-commercial, and artistic creations.
The locals love Newtown's Designers Market, as do all visitors. Here you will find many different types of design, including clothing, accessories, jewellery, hats and giftware. Everything here shouts ‘art' with a bold voice, and it is an atmosphere full of inspiration.
When you visit the markets, remember to leave time to explore the rest of King Street. Address: Newtown Neighbourhood Centre, 1 Bedford Street, Newtown, NSW, 2042.
