Chronicling Newtown

On a spontaneous Friday morning before uni started, we decided to unwind by going on an impulsive exploration of Newtown in Sydney’s inner west. We had passed the extensive graffiti filled streets on a regular basis but have never taken the time to physically go through them. 

So we decided to finally divert from King Street, Newtown’s infamous thoroughfare, and walk through the hidden streets on the opposite side of the train line. We found some really quirky and amusing graffiti and abandoned sites, leading to our walk going a lot further than anticipated. 

After a couple of hours of exploring, we decided to head back to Café C on King Street and design our own juices. The morning was quite unexpected and a great break from the assignments that were awaiting us back home so we definitely recommend it for any other procrastinators out there.
