Newtown is located approximately 4km south-west of the Sydney CBD and has a population of 17,721 people.

Newtown was established as a residential and farming area in the early 19th century. The area took its name from a grocery store that stood where the Newtown railway station stands today. A sign atop the store read ‘New Town Stores’. The name New Town was then adopted.

King Street is the main street of Newtown and the centre of commercial and entertainment activity. The street follows the spine of a long ridge that rises up near Sydney University and extends to the south, becoming the Princes Highway at its southern end.

Today, Newtown is one of the most popular nightspots in Sydney. King Street is full of people all hours of the night. Off the main streets, Newtown has many quiet spots perfect for the bohemian community it is known for.
