Start your tour at Single Origin Cafe in Surry Hills for the best coffee in town. Coffee is serious business in Sydney and at Single O they are fanatical about sourcing the highest quality, ethical coffee around. Hang curbside, chat with a hipster barista and enjoy a single origin pour-over, cold brew or espresso of the week.

Urban Art Scene

Surry Hills is the perfect spot to explore Sydney’s street art – often hidden in back the backstreets or on concealed buildings that only the locals know about. Explore the ultra-funky suburb of Chippendale for a real sense of the city’s old and new. Visit the White Rabbit Gallery – an eclectic art museum locals love, off the beaten tourist track.

Wander the colourful back streets of Surry Hills and Redfern to discover Sydney’s smallest streets for great shopping, dining and some of the city’s most fascinating hidden architectural gems. Finish your experience with wine and lunch at Mille Vini – a trend-setting wine bar serving modern European/Italian fare located within a heritage-listed 1849 stonemasonry workshop. Your host will escort you back to your starting point after lunch.
