In the nineteenth century Surry Hills was Sydney’s home of crime, vice and ill repute, but these days the Hills are alive with creatives, organic cafes, small bars and bicycles. One of the city’s most dynamic enclaves, Surry Hills is filled with an eclectic mix of urban professionals, interesting retail, co-working spaces and restaurants. You’ll find designerboutiques, vinyl and bookstores and some of the best food and drink in Australia. Surry Hills also boasts an art house cinema, an open attitude and an extensive network of cycleways that connects it from the CBD to the inner west. The locals appreciate good coffee, cold beer and the annual and highly convivial neighbourhood celebration that is the Surry Hills Festival.
