If you have an interest in craft beer a stop at Young Henry’s is highly recommended. The Brewery is in a warehouse and easy to miss but worth taking the time to find! Try the Newtowner or the Cloudy Cider if you are not into beer.

Street art
This one is one of the earlier Newtown murals. Painted in August 1991 by Andrew Aiken and Juilee Pryor (Unmitigated Audacity Productions). Later the Aboriginal flag was added at the bottom.

The park home to a gorgeous mural by Fintan Magee, probably my favourite street artist working in Sydney. This project was crowd-funded by residents in the houses surrounding the park. I was told by a local that image represents the first page of a picture book, and the artist hopes to complete several more in the neighbourhood to reveal the story.

On the wall of the Urban Hotel, you will find another Fintan Magee mural; this is called Housing Bubble. Pretty appropriate for Sydney I think.

Phillip St and Phillip Lane, Thurnby Lane and Gladstone Street Enmore In these three streets, you will find a mix of stencil art and spray art. Artists are working in these lanes every time I visit. Last time I spoke with an older Greek gentleman whose home backs on to the lane and asked him if he minded all the graffiti, he said he felt it made the surroundings more beautiful, and he loved that now there are always people around.

Shopping
Just before the 'I have a dream' mural is Blue Dog Poster shop – worth a look if you want to take home some local artwork at a very reasonable price.
