Newton – a suburb of Sydney Australia (state of New South Wales), 10 minutes outside of the CBD. Notable for a colourful bohemian population numerous off-beat boutique stores and a variety of international food outlets, a lot of them Thai. Exemplary of Sydney’s reviled Terrace House architecture it is historically a working-class suburb. The neighbouring University of Sydney provides a regular stream of student clientele. The older and more rundown parts offer comparatively cheaper rents than other inner-city suburbs although as with most of this area of Sydney it is slowly being renovated, attracting more affluent residents. Together with adjacent suburbs of Enmore, Stanmore Camperdown and St. Peters Newtown is notorious as a focus for alternative youth cultures including punk, stoner, goth, metal and hippie. Not exclusive to any of these, the main drag – King Street is renowned for a variety of pubs and clubs including “Townie” (Town Hall), Coopers Arms, The Bank and Zanzibar, to name a few.
