Newtown plays host to a huge mix of award-winning foodie spots with so much variety, it's almost impossible to pick out the cream of the crop. We’ve tried and tested, and brought together the locale's firm favourites, to give you the ultimate Newtown Food Safari.
Filled with great pubs, restaurants, and cafes, this tour will lead you through thriving King Street, visit several popular establishments, and taste sweet and savoury samples along the way.
Hear historical and cultural insights from your local guide, experience warm hospitality, sample a Thai delicacy, and taste the most photographed cake in Australia!
This safari also takes you through Camperdown Memorial Park where your host will speak about the early days of Newtown regarding its settlement, timeline for development, and current funky persona.
While there's never a dull moment in Newtown, you will also have the opportunity to pass the colourful Newtown markets, as well as other iconic landmarks.
The Newtown Safari is not a high-end gourmet tour, but if you love tasty food of all kinds, and are looking for a funky, fun and social experience, then this is the Safari for you. It is not suitable for children under the ages of 13 years.
There will be some walking involved so please wear comfortable shoes and bring an umbrella if the weather calls for it. Not all dietary requirements can be catered for at every venues on this tour, so please inform us of your dietary requirements at the time of booking.

Whilst the food was good, the real outstanding feature of this tour was the guide, Karyn. She has a wonderful knowledge of the area, takes great care and concern for the participants and is a delight to spend time with. She is organised (without appearing to be locked in) and has great skills as keeping the group moving whilst allowing us time when needed. 5/5 by Jennifer Munro 17-2-2019
