The Sydney suburb that has inspired more songs than any other is worthy of those arias. We love Newtown for the pubs: the Courty, the Towny, the Bank and the rest.
We love Newtown for the music - the Vanguard owns Sydney jazz. We love it for the food - Bloodwood and Gelatomassi. And we love it for the Dendy. We even love it for the students: those hordes from Sydney Uni, after all, are a big part of the whole sharehouse appeal of this very cool suburb.
