About Surry Hills
Once the scruffy home to Sydney’s rag trade and a former local haunt for nefarious folk like the Kate Leigh, Surry Hills is now Sydney’s buzziest and most happening ’burb.
Want clothes? Hop along Crown and Bourke or hit the monthly markets for some seriously cool vintage.
Hungry? Well, ‘Surry’, as locals call it simply, is a virtual urban foodcourt brimming with Sydney’s most innovative chefs – Kylie, Bill, Colin, those rockabilly Porteño boys, the Strodes… they’re all there.
Thirsty? From absinthe to big bold reds, Surry Hills has got you covered. In fact, so transformed has this steep little slice of Sydney been that some are wondering whether it’s lost its rougher charms. Maybe. But when you’re six-in at the Cricketers on a Friday arvo, mixing it with the gentrifiers and the gentrified, it's hard to think of a place in Sydney you’d rather be.
